        Our club was on Chicago TV a few years ago, when we made over 1500 toys. It was our Toys for Kids program that caused me to stop fishing and make more toys. This year we made over 600 toys.

        There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

          That is a great video. I am getting in the same spirit. I am going to make some wood toys through out the year to donate for next Christmas. My wife and I buy toys and other items through out the year to donate to under privileged kids. It is amazing the good buys you can get if you have the time to shop.

            For three years I cut out 2X4 cars and trucks for the Marine reserve. They sanded and painted and added the wheels someone else made. Averaged about 2000 bodies a years until I wore out the scrollsaw. Good feeling.

            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                Now,...

                It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
