    Beautiful inspiring work Tony!

    Glad to hear that the Kobalt saw worked out very well.

    FYI - I took delivery last week of a SKILSAW 8 1/4" blade portable table saw to assist in cutting pieces for segmented bowl work which I was very pleased to find out of the box was set...

    Jim - you are indeed the master at making these toys!

    I am sure you get almost as much pleasure out of making them as do the kids who eventually get to play with them.

    They remind me very much of popular 'folk art' toys produced in Michoacan state here in Central Mexican with...

  • Bonjour planeur!

    This is very nice project, well cut and shaped. Even though the colors are not true to life the choice of woods you made combine very well together and you should be pleased with the finished piece.

    Congratulations on your first big project!! .

    The shop extension should read 11ft, not 13ft! I screwed up my conversion from cms to feet and inches.

    You had me worried though that I'd screwed up the placement holes for the uprights and cross beams so I just went...

    Hi folks - I really feel sorry for you people north of the border.

    Wow! - this a stunning piece!

    In particular the head is so lifelike it feels like if you got too close to this bird he (or she) would reach out and nip you with its beak....

  • Workshop extension and major facelift - a work in progress

    Hi all -

    Around the beginning of year I mentioned in a post that I was looking at ways to extend my existing workshop space to give me room to accommodate a midi lathe I had bought and to also allow me to undertake smallish carpentry projects in addition to scrollsaw work. Well, I finally

    replied to Who has Been Vaccinated ?
    Here in Mexico we are way behind the US. Last week the government put up a web site for over 60's to register to be vaccinated. It was impossible to access the login page for the first 48 hrs. When folks were finally able to obtain access the servers used to confirm the individual's national identity...
