  • Winchester Rifle with a Change

    I decided at the last minute to make one of Steve Good's Winchester rifles for my Dad for Christmas. I did mine a little different. I gave it a little intarsia style. I cut the trigger area from blue pine and fit it to the rifle.

    I used 3 different kinds of wood for this. Peruvian walnut, walnut and blue pine. The holder was made from curly maple.

    I wish I could have made the barrel from blue pine, but since I don't turn I used a dowel and painted it. I think he liked it!!

                      Celtic knot-shamrock cross
                      by Ennobee
                      My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                      Hi Jim.
                      glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                      Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

                      by jim_mex
                      I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me.
