    New worked w/ wood before
  1. I got to take the tansu jejewelry box with Mike pekovich last spring. It was a blast that place is awesome...check out Corey s catsup and mustard for dinner, great burgers and beer. And their breakfast place pastrami on wry.
  2. THanks for the opinions...I like the idea of getting one useful chisel that will take me a long way. I don't like the idea of buying sets of tools except for bench chisels. What metal did you use to make those easy wood tool knock offs...I like that idea as well.
  3. I know you get what you pay for and all that. But I really want to get a lathe and I'm willing to get a small one off cl for starts and upgrade later. My question is where do I begin with lathe tools what do I start with can I get away with one or two and work my way up. I mostly want to turn tool handles to start and move up from there. Any advice would be appreciated. Also metals are most lathe tool metals the same?
  4. It's very clearly cracked which I'm currently gluing in the picture but otherwise it looks nice
  5. Anyone know anything about this guy...picked it up for 5 bucks today at a garage sale
  6. http://burlington.craigslist.org/atq/4551644767.html Came across this anyone know anything about this particular saw l. And any reason why I should go with a different setup.
  7. I like the idea of routing a circle hidden on it somewhere and gluing a quarter from the year it was finished
  8. When I took a class with mike pekovich last month and this weekend coming up, he went over sharpening my new hock blade with me and we used the ruler trick and I have to say I'm convinced.
  9. I think it may be safe to assume that we all have a granite counter shop somewhere nearby. If not this may not work. I have found many pieces of granite for free in their dumpsters in many sizes. Even one year used them to make cheese plates for family members.
  10. Here's a trick, put what you want on your amazon wish list. And leave it logged on "accidentally" so she comes across it.
  11. I bought a solid core door and put it on my saw horses and it works great...also got the door at a habitat restore for only 15 bucks.
  12. How about an ebony and holly bench. Bet that would look striking.
