    Used some leftover steel tube and flat stock, plus a set of HD casters from Amazon, to weld up a mobile base for my woodworking planer. The factory mobile bases are $150 and up for objects weighing 500+ lbs, but they’re adjustable, so they tend to sag no matter how much I tighten them up. So out came my welder, and I had this base knocked out in a few hours for less than $40. Doesn’t sag - so far! :)

    You and yours do wonderful things, things that are being lost by todays advancements.. Years from now you and the crew may be putting on classes to teach lost arts..

    Turned a blank of curly maple on my lathe to make this keepsake container. I also cut two concentric grooves in the top of the lid, and poured in some epoxy with bluish mica powder added. Then I sanded it down to 800 grit and finished with a pure tung oil mix. The container is about three inches high and two and a half inches in diameter. My second attempt at turning on the lathe.

    Made this for Mom. Cane/walking stick made from 1" Oak Dowel and a real billiard ball.
    (Still needs to be cut to length.)

    Made this for my daughter last Christmas break. Trying to figure out what I’m going to do this break. Maybe a mitre saw bench, picnic table or shooting bench.

    my first try at pastels.jpg

    My first pastel attempt. It took about 2 hours. Didn't transfer anything, it's just a sketch.
