  • I think I have him hooked

    He's a beginner, so I guess it fits here, 9-yr old great-grandson - this is the third run through of the practice pattern. He's already cut a star and a heart. I'm going to have him cut out a cat puzzle from the Saw magazine next.

      Excellent. Train him well. Will love seeing what he can come up with.

                Reminds me of when I started my grandson on a scroll saw. It gives them an other way to be creative. Have fun.

                  I keep a hair dyer in my shop and use it to speed up the setting of some finishes on small items. (I have a heat gun but mine is too hot for urging a finish to set.)

                  I use the drill press as a press on small delicate items that need fitting into a spot/hole, especially on pen making. I...

The greek yoghurt cups come in handy for holding all sorts of small parts & pieces, as do the styrofoam trays that...

                  I save the creamer containers from the coffee shop. Great for mixing small amounts of epoxy, add paint into for painting small projects, or add some mineral spirits into for cleaning small brushes....etc, etc.

                  Linda , Great subject!
                  Actually I have the handle on the front of my Hawk and clip on a plastic bag with clothes pins. The Hawk blade is way up front.
                  Lots of the so called Dogy bags are really nice plastic containers with lids, I use them for small parts, dipping in sanding sealer etc....
