  • Tray Puzzle Style

    I met my darling wife at Marshall University back in 76 when we were both journalism students (neither of us work in the field now). The mascot of the Thundering Herd is Marco the bull. I saw something similar to this in a restaurant in Huntington and she wanted one.
    I this as a tray style puzzle and then used various stains and a couple of touches of paint. Of course, I framed it, but wanted to get a photo while the light was right.

    Sorry about the quality of picture--shot on my flip phone and then cropped.

    Too early to leave, too late to call in.

    She must be a special lady for you to remember things like this. She's bound to love it too.

              Sad but seeing this trend more and more. I think there are several reasons. In general fewer people are interested in hand crafted goods made by local artists. They see what they like and buy it no matter if I was hand crafted locally or commercially produced. Second the made overseas stuff is cheaper...

              The set screw Carole mentioned is opposite the blade tightening knob. She is correct the screws will make the blade be off center. I had only one problem with the DW. There is a fitting on the end oif the motor arm. Mine came loose and made a racket. I followed the video you mentioned and it was very...

              Start by retracting the set screw fully on both upper and lower clamps, then turn them each the same amount until they have protruded enough to grab the blade when you tighten the thumb screw. If for some reason the blade is still not completely perpendicular, adjust them until it is. Should not be...

              A lot of fairs in this area are going back to the way it used to be meaning you need to submit pictures of your work and some equipment. A lot of promoters are also visiting craft shows and talking to vendors and asking them to apply for their show. this is my 3rd year at the howard county 3 day show...

              If my memory is correct you have a set screw on the left side of blade clamp and the thumb screw on the right side on both upper and lower blade clamps. If you do not adjust both set screws so they are the same (just proud of blade clamp slot), your blade will not be square.
