  • See what our kids can do!

    I still don't have a saw, but my daughter kinda does She has woodworking class at school and came home with her latest Corian work. I couldn't help myself but to show you all what my little girl made. I hope you all like it, even though it's not done yet. Her teacher has clocks for sale, but she didn't know she'd be done today, so she'll get the clock insert tomorrow.

    I'm still waiting for her segmentation work to come home from the class' bragging case. As soon as that comes home, I'll post that as well.

          It's very nice. how young is young? And where's she taking classes? my daughter is only 5 and she can follow a line when she wants to, otherwise she just cuts firewood.

            Ok, well, maybe she isn't THAT young She's 15 and I suppose I'm so proud of her because she has never in her life taken an interest of any hobby whatsoever. Fortunately, she hasn't made too much firewood. She's real serious about her work and is very protective of her work from her younger brother who makes tons of firewood and who also hogs the saw so no one else can get anything done.

            She's in 10th grade and needed something for an elective. She wanted woodworking last year but the class filled up and she wound up with something else. After starting the class this year, she would tell me about what she learned and so forth and I would do the usual, "yea, yea" and not pay much attention until she started bringing her work home. That's when I started to think about getting our own saw. Yesterday, a boy in her class wound up in the hospital after almost cutting three fingers off on the bandsaw. Oh boy!

            So, sorry to disappoint you on her age, but to me, she's still a kid. And, like I said since this is her first real hobby and she's good at it, I just wanted to share it with you all. It still amazes me that there's younger children than her out there making sawdust!

                That clock is a well executed piece no matter how old you are!

                I would be proud if I had done that myself.

                Tell your daughter GREAT JOB!
                you are not the only one proud of her.

                  You've got a very talented daughter, Mia. Seeing a finished piece like that must make the smell of corian being cut seem more bearable.

                            I think it is a fine work. She has talent. Get this one published. It will give her some encouragement.

                              I'm sorry for being so stupid, but what do you mean "publish her work"? Can you please explain? Thanks!

                                Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                                Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                                Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                                Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                                I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                                Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
