  • Peace On Earth Candles

    FINALLY got this piece finished and it's for ME! This one is NOT leaving the house! I've made this piece several times, but this time used different woods .... bloodwood and cherry candles, sumac and poplar leaves, shedoah (sp?) needles. Flame is pine and cedar, plaque is nogal and letters are maple. Baltic birch ply is the flame's glow.

    This is a JGR pattern (not in a book but purchased separately). It's the first pattern I ever bought, is still my favourite, and I suspect it always will be.

    It is well done and kudos on making something for you. It is not very often we make something to keep.

                Beautiful is the first word that comes to mind...

                  Nice colors Lou! Nice to see you making one to keep. I always say I can make another one and never do (to keep that is)

                    I haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult. And I understand (from my wife's perspective) that computer apps are totally made for nerds - in her opinion. The breakdown is often between two of...

                    Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                    With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
