  • Blade safety (for your children)

    Yesterday I pick my 3 year old grandson up from daycare to watch him until his mom came to pick him up. Of course he wanted to go into my shop. Make a long story short it was a late night and I did not pick up the swept pile of sawdust. First place he went to after we opened the door and him saying "awesome!" was the pile. He put his hand in the pile to play, he picked out an old blade from my scroll saw! I am lucky that it did not cut him.
    At work we use a tube for old razor blades, so I decided to make one for used scroll saw blades.
    Take a piece of PVC pipe cut to your length. Put a cap on one side, other side use a male thread and cap ( so you can empty and reuse it). Drill a hole in the cap to slide the blades in.
    I hope this helps.

    I use an old empty bottle of water to put the old ones in. Contains quite a few and I can screw the cap back on in case it fall down.

        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...
