  • Nail Pouches

    Hi everyone
    I too am new to this site and I really enjoy it alot. I,ve been scrolling for about 12 years now. I started with a crasftman saw that my dad had given me, now I have the Dewalt 788. I really like the saw and have had no problems with it at all. I have a ? that has bugged me for years. You know the nail pouches that everyone at one time or another has used? Why in the world do they always make the strings shorter everytime I use one *L*Have a great week everyone.

          Thank-you Evie for replying to my post. Yes I will have to put a few pics of my work on this site. I have a clock that I made called the Gus Clock that I sent to Orange County Choppers. Paul Sr. has a Bull Mastiff dog called Gus. I have not heard anything from them as yet. I did make another clock and sent it to them that I seen on TV. Thanks again

              Welcome fretdust. two things we love here, woodwork and humour, no matter how it is spelled

              When my dad passed away one of the things he left me was his leather apron. I am glad the strap is long enough. I am way bigger than dad ever was
              He had to use a pillow to be Santa, I don't!

              For the sake of a few cents more you think they would make an apron that fastens up front!

              Heck they don't seem to give much away any more. I even saw a price tag on a paint stir stick the other day. I remember when you got the stick the church key and a drop cloth just for buying paint. Oh yeah, free painters caps then too.

              We sure have lost a lot in our new bottom line profiteering era.

              Well I am off to scrounge up another soapbox I need the wood for cutting.

                Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                Was it a good idea.....?...

                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
