  • Child's Name Train

    Finally finished my Granddaughters train. Engine and Caboose made from untreated 2x4, the rest from Aspen. Cut partially on the band saw and some with a scroll saw. Letters are 2 1/2 " high, overall length is 39". Paint is non-toxic.

    Now I've got no projects in work. So...I'm creating a fretwork pattern I call "Courting Tigers." I really like the idea so I hope the pattern meets my expectations.

    That's a great looking train, Mike, and a great idea. Now I know what to make my nephew for his birthday!

          Very nicely done, Mike - i wish someone had made one of those for me when i was a kid - though the train would have been a lot shorter

                  That's adorable.

                  If I already didn't have something in mind for my niece and nephew for their birthdays, I just might have had to make one for them.

                    Excalibur 21 repair #2
                    by Rolf
                    I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                    I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                    I used...

                    If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                    After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                    I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                    Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                    Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
