  • Long Snake puzzle

    After completing and turning in the Snake Puzzle article for the spring issue I decided to take the puzzle to the next step and do a long puzzle out of dowel rods. You can flatten the bottom of a dowel just a bit and shape the snake head and tail just like you do in the article but then you have to free hand cut the puzzle. This one here was made out of 3 3' dowels and is over 7.5' long.

      Bob, this one isn't coming apart by me. I have donated it to a class at my son't old high school that helped me test my article last spring. This one has about 150 pieces to it. It does have a nice grain pattern to it. I have started painting some of the puzzles.

          Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
          That is...

          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

          Now,...
