  1. wax on wax off..... nice looking mallet
  2. I built this because I was the worst at sharpening turning tools. I love the grinder and the Wolverine grinding system it has upped my game no doubt. I made the station on casters I also have my work sharp and my other grinder all hooked up and one plug powers up all devices.
  3. When I'm in a similar fix I use a thickness planner sled ( piece of plywood with some plywood runners I think mine are 2" wide to give the sled stability and keeps it flat it has a cleat at the leading edge so the planner rollers advance the sled and, board through. I use playing cards under the concave face to level and shim the voids till I get my piece stable and where I will take off the least amount of thickness then I screw, pin nail or, hotmelt glue some scrap blocks to the sled to keep the board from shifting side to side sneak up on a flat face set the sled away and then run the flattened face down on the planner until your happy. It sounds like more of PITA than it actually is I've had my sled for at least twenty years and the playing cards are reusable I use cards for lots of different things and they don't compress so they work as great shim stock. I see guys using wedges also but I like the cards. Check out some You Tube videos on planner sleds there a lot of ways to skin that cat.
  4. @AWBox It's hard to watch what's happening in your country every day on the news. I couldn't imagine what you and yours are feeling, try and stay safe, I hope for the insanity to end soon.
  5. Thanks Drew I've wondered where Tommy went to. I liked most of his shows on PBS I've used several tricks I gleaned from him like the L fence and I know I could remember more if given enough time.
  6. Well I got into a little fender bender today, after I clipped this guys car I pulled off onto the shoulder of the road he pulled in behind me. I'm waiting in my car his car door opens and a dwarf jumps out and as he's approaching my car he yells HEY I'M NOT Happy so I say "YA which one are you"......
  7. @gee-dub It seems I've seen a version of the jointer method you mentioned but, it was on a drill press with a drum sanding bit, I think it was a episode of The Woodsmith shop, I could be wrong.
  8. Interesting I think I like it now I just need to get a disk sander. I have a miter slot on my Ridgid oscillating spindle sander maybe I could make this concept work in conjunction with the belt sanding attachment.....hmmmm. Thanks
  9. @Mark J No mark I formed the the spoon getting the general shape on the bandsaw cutting out to the drawn line on the blank in 2 dimensions cut out one dimension tape the off cuts back on to the blank, then cut out the 2nd dimension. I refined the shape with rasps, files, belt sanding attachment on my oscillating spindle sander, and a bunch of hand sanding. Then I dug out the bowl with Kutzall coarse ball bit on my drill press holding the spoon and, pressing the spoon into the ball bit. Then a bunch of hand sanding to the final project.
  10. @treeslayerI used the coarse one Dave the wood I used was Ash just a chunk of fire wood. It was fun a lot of hand sanding I did use my belt sanding attachment for my Ridgid oscillating spindle sander on the handle and bottom of the bowl.
  11. I made this spoon I used the Kutzall ball bit I put it on my drill press and took the spoon to the bit by hand I worked great for me.
  12. Bon fire! I'll get the weenies and marshmallows.
  13. Thanks guys. The worm tracks mostly just blended in and disappeared, if you look really close while holding the bowl you can see down into the tracks but, it doesn't matter my daughter was very happy to get it and started setting up her latest crochet masterpiece into it and, was all smiles good enough for me!
  14. the bowl turned out good I think the grain and spalting is amazing I wish I had more of this ash, the worm tracks weren't that great you can only see into a couple of them the rest just blend in
