  • Hello from Burien, WA

    I've been scrolling for about 5 years now. I've done quite a few clocks and things like that. I work full-time, so I only get to play on the weekends, and only then when the wife can't think of something else for me to do .

    I've got a DW788 that I really like. My most recent clock is the La Patience, which I stack-cut for my mother and aunt as Christmas gifts. Next I plan to do a cuckoo clock. Someday I'll be brave enough to tackle that big grandfather clock that I've already got the plans for.

          I'm in Cheney WA and I also have the DW788. Can't wait to see photos of those clocks!

              Welcome from me too .. I've visited WA. Beautiful state in places - especially the Cacade Mountains and Olympic peninsula.

              Like the others I'd be interested to see those clocks..

                  Beautiful inspiring work Tony!

                  Glad to hear that the Kobalt saw worked out very well.

                  FYI - I took delivery last week of a SKILSAW 8 1/4" blade portable table saw to assist in cutting pieces for segmented bowl work which I was very pleased to find out of the box was set...

                  This is the definition of spalting, Basically it changes the color of parts of the wood as it decays. Turners love it.
                  "Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress. Although spalting...

                  You should try the dragon vase pattern as well. I first made mine after Steve published his first pdf vase book by swapping in one of his dragon motifs from the online library. Thats a really good way to increase your supply of patterns. I think Steve liked it because the dragon was included in the...

                  Hey Tim - it's been a while pal! Great to hear from you.

                  Point taken care of! Yesterday I ordered 3 sheets of 3/4" of construction plywood to be delivered this morning to start mounting the roof
