    Now that joke is just excremental.

  • Nope - no Ringmaster. I do it with the scroll saw. I looked at the ring masters, but they make 3/16 - 1/4 inch kerfs and I didn't want that.

    BTW - this is one reason why I can't use the SeyCo saw. Ray's saw only tilts 30+° and I need to be able to do 45°....

  • Yep - tools of the trade. Pic's below. I, also, included a shot of what happens to Hickory and Brazilian Cherry when I used gouges on them. Took a bit of sanding to get those chipped edges out. The walls of the bowls are only about 1/4" thick....

    What? Is Carole 35, again? And she only looks 29 - Amazing

    Have a good one, Carole. I'll raise a glass to you - after I'm out of the shop.

    replied to Pricing
    Figure out what you want to make per hour and keep track of your time when making things.

    Example -- you stack cut and finish 4 ornaments in 1-1/2 hours. You decide you want to make $15 per hour. Time spent works out to $22.50. Divide that by four ornaments and sell them for $5.75 each....

  • Using up some Brazilian Cherry & Hickory scraps

    With some Walnut and Padauc thrown in for dressing.

    Open disclaimer - I did use my lathe - but - the cherry & hickory is so brittle and chippy that I had to use gouges just to get them round and shape the base. After that it was all sand paper....

    That's a cherry little roadster, there, Rolf. I had fun with my TC for about four years, then came the wife & kids and another deployment. I finally gave it up. The only problem I ever had with it was oil leaks. Get one fixed and run it for awhile and another would pop up. I always believed the...

    Old deck -> new deck

    My old treated wood deck (30 years) finally got past my level of care. I tried to get someone to come in and just clean it up and paint it, but their prices are exorbitant ($4-6K+). And, I'd still have the annual cleaning and refinishing or the high refinishing costs every four or five years. This is,...

    replied to Pine splitting in unusual way
    I've seen that happen with pine and fir. More with yellow pine than others. I always believed it was because pine has soft grain layered in between hard grain, but I've had "wood experts" tell me that's not the cause. It's just stress in the wood.

    Awesome, Rolf! Which Brit sports car - I lived and loved a '48 MG TC, when I was much younger and had no kids.

    replied to Yesterday's Show
    No problem - I started the Care & Cleaning cards after so many people were asking how to clean intarsia pieces. The dishwasher statement got added to the turned item cards, after a sister-in-law used a gifted fruit bowl as a salad bowl and washed it in the dishwasher and I got a "Can this be...

    Yes - I'm charging her for the repair and shipping it back to her. Actual labor time was about an hour. The rest was waiting for glue & finish to dry. I sent her pictures and she's super happy and mailing a check.

    So, it all worked out.

    replied to Yesterday's Show
    The reason for the separation was the mahogany plug in the middle of the vase. It swelled in the steam/heat of the dishwasher. I was able to bore that out and then, using some epoxy, in the gaps, a 2-3 inch hose clamp did the trick, to pull the segments closed. I replaced the mahogany plug with a padauc...

    Yesterday's Show

    Did the Dutch Market show in Hanover, PA yesterday. First show with the bright new canopy, that the wife & daughter picked out at Amazon.

    Had a lady come up with a travel mug, that she bought from me a couple of years ago. "Can you fix this?"

    I give every person...

    Doctors Visit

    An elderly couple went to visit the doctor for their semi-annual check-up. After the doc examined the old man and did the prescriptions, he said, "You're in pretty good health for your age. Do you have any questions for me?"

    "Ayep," said the old guy, "When we have...

    replied to Pegas Blade Chuck?
    I'm using the round knob, that I got from SeyCo for my EX-21, in the bottom Pegas clamp. So the Excalibur OEM thumb screws will work fine in the Pegas Clamps. I had used an old Dewalt thumbscrew in the EX a while back, so my assumption is that the thread for the clamps in these saws are somewhat standard....

  • That's an interesting shape. Is that a mandolin, or ukulele, or dulcimer? Whatever, it looks excellently crafted.
