I was approached by a gal at work asking if I could make a custom cane for her father who needs to use one, but refuses to. I gathered some information from her about her father: 1) he was an avid cb'er - handle was night hawk 747 2) he loves fishing 3) he is a man of God (a minister) 4) his name is Sam 5) his favorite bible verse is Philippians 4:16, and..... 6) he loves the "fish" symbol With that information I proceeded to layout a customized cane for Minister Sam i am extremely glad to hear he refuses to leave home without it and he is excited that the cane initiates many conversation providing him the opportunity to preach the Word of God. Some of the pictures are before the cleanup after staining. I lightly sand the piece to cleanup the areas where the stain got onto the surface.
I like the carbon steel tools, but they didn't have a dust/chip deflector. Most of it hit me and my mask/face shield. My solution was to use goop and attach a super magnet on the tool. Then I got a squeeze type paper clip, (larger example shown) removed the outer finger clamps and goop a small piece of steel to it. Then goop in a piece of plexiglass. It is on an angle and perfect for deflecting. If there is a drawback it is that the magnet attracts other things too, but not much of a problem. I have magnets on all my carbon steel turning tools. The shield quickly goes from tool to tool.
