      Thanks for the kind words, yes she actually likes it quite a bit, normally things I make dont please her as much, but her theme is Palm Trees, Flamingoes.

        Pleasing the better half is an admiral goal. I'm glad she liked it. Keep up the good work. Thanks for showing us.

          Great first real project. And if I read this correctly you sliced the wood with a hand saw? That in itself is impressive.

              Very impressive first project. But like Rolf, I am amazed that the pieces were cut with a hand saw.

                Very nice. I don't know if you planned this or not, but the grain is just perfect. It makes it look like the palm leaves are blowing in the wind. I can see me using a hand saw to slice wood - not.

                  Thank you for the kind words....and in terms of the grain, my better half suggested which pieces to use, and the orientation. Hand sawing, well had no choice, I wont try and slice on table saw, and piece was too tall for little bandsaw, so .....

                    Me - also! I drove from Memphis to Dallas yesterday in heavy rain all the way. Could not use the cruise control. My leg was in a knot.

                    Having said that, I can sit still at the scroll saw for about an 30 minutes at the most before I have to move around; On the lathe, I can also stand in...

                    I've lured a husky neighbor with the promise of a turned pen. Now we are just waiting for the d()*& rain to stop so we can get the minivan around to the back steps into the basement, and get it down stairs. All my neighbors know that, when they help me - they walk away with a priceless work of art...

                    Scrappile I like that engine hoist. When we moved into this house back in 96 One of the first things I did was put a loft in the garage and provided a place to hang a chain hoist for working on my car. The roll around hoist has some advantages over my setup.

                    I have two variable speed controllers one is on my Digital embroidery machine(inherited from my Mom) and I also have a Rampower carver with the electronic foot pedal. The variable speed on both of those gives much more control. especially on the power carver....
