  • For my Son

    Well my son is into this ting called GEO Caching. It is where you go out and find a GEO Cache using a GPS that other people have hidden. Any way he wanted to set up his own Cache and I told him I would make a first find gift for him and made 2 sets of Geo Cache coasters, a set for him to keep and a set to place in his cache which he designed with a borrowers (the movie) theme. I really like the way they came out specially since they were the first coasters I have ever made. I used cork for the backing. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Comments always welcome.

    Those are really nice! I took my niece and nephew geocaching last summer and never found anything so nice. Usually just plastic toys, seashells and the like. I never was the first finder of a stash though. I have often thought it would be cool to make wooden coins to leave along with the keychains/toys we usually put in.

      I am thinking about what to make for the next cache he starts. I don't know what I am going to do yet but I might have to look into the wooden coin idea.

        He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

        Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

        I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

        You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
