  • My first post and poor photography

    G'Day All

    Have been making a few boxes, thought you may like to see my efforts. Sorry about the photography as taken with flash under tungsten light.

    Cheers

    Nice boxes Bernie. What wood did you use? Thanks for sharing them with us.

      Silky Oak, Pine and camphor Laurel, glad you like them, pity about the photography.
      Silky Oak from an old church pulpit I was given, Pine from an old table and Camphor Laurel from local tree falling.

              Bernie,

              Great looking boxes! Considering the lighting, the pictures turned out well.

              If you can't fix it with sawdust and glue, it's not worth fixing.

                Bernie -- Great boxes. Kim is right, re-purposing wood is great -- and a lot cheaper than buying new wood. The wood in the first box looks a lot like lacewood.

                      Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

                      Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...

                      The saw was plugged into a Festool Midi vac, which was plugged directly into a wall outlet.

                      Rolf, could you explain your setup again? It appears your saw is plugged into foot switch which is plugged into outlet strip. Where does the Festool fit? Does it turn on when saw starts if it is...
