    Second Attempt

    After the disaster of my first cedar box try I did away with the box joints and used simple joinery:widea:. I think this one came out lookin' much better. No tails to break off! No expensive router jig that I probably wasted my...

    First Attempt at Turning...

    ...other than a pen or two. Spalted maple from the tree that fell down the road. I know it's still green so I'll see how well it dries :dontknow::eusa_pray The base needs to be a little thinner, both in diameter and base ring height. But it's funny how things look different horizontal as...

    ACU pencil....first attempt

    Here is the first attempt at what started out as a pen and turned into a pencil....The top half is the piece with the corian and the bottom is wrapped straight on the barrel. It's not perfect, but I'm sure it will get beat up in Iraq. Let me know what you think.

    OOPS! or a shameless attempt....

    I was busily working away at my scroll saw a little bit ago and had just released the blade moved it and was pressing the tensioning knob back into place and poof - it broke off. I, of course, thought that it was a sign that I need a new saw. LOML thought it meant that he had to go to Lowes to...

    1st Real Attempt to Scroll!

    Well here goes!!! I decided to pull out the Tradesman scroll saw (:lol: :lol: ) and give scroll work a shot. I saw a plan for a plant stand that was supported with six angel figure's. Looked simple enough for my first shot at the art. (Thanks Cathy, for both your inspiration as well as sharing...

    Pen Cornucopia/My first attempt at commerce :-)

    Well, I finally compiled a number of pens that I feel confident to offer to the outside world :-) After all, my wife likes them, so they've passed a stringent test of quality :-) I have some friends who have taken upon a dream and created their own vineyard. The grapes have been planted for...

    Another attempt at to get the this idea across

    Let me repeat what first brought this whole thing up. FYI, I tried to re-phrase a few things to lessen misunderstandings The Phrase "Active Member" seems to be the cause of some of the misconception and "panic". Perhaps, some of you might have a suggestions for a name or phrase. Remember...

    First Attempt

    Ok, Yes, after a lot of bowls and vases, I had thought about trying a pen or pencil set. I admit to that. After seeing some of Cathy's work at the get together out at the lake, I knew I had to get off the fence and try it. Here's a post of that first effort, Walnut with Satin Gold...

    First attempt at carving

    So I tried to cut out a design on the end of a poplar board. Lets just say, it hurts to have 2 horsepower break a board on your hand. Im using a straight bit 1/4" on a board thats about 3/4" thick. The bit is raised slightly over the boards height. Its just very resistant to any kind of turn or...

    Another attempt at yahoo groups

    Actually, the first attempt didn't go as bad as I first thought. We did learn a few things. 1. Messages posts via email are not reliable from the sense of time. 2. To post on the Web site, you must have a Yahoo ID. 3. Your email that you use for posting purposes must one that is in your Yahoo...

    In case I can help anyone to feel MUCH better about their own carving skills, I've posted some pics of a picture frame that I just made--my first attempt at carving. Apologies for the (mercifully) poor picture quality. Here's a link to the gallery...
