Re: Golf Tee Signs

I like the style and think you have finished the sign of really well, In all the years I played golf I never saw a sign on a course that looked that good.

Re: Portland Head Light, Maine

That turned out great and the grain in the pine gives the sky a pretty cool effect.

Re: Rotary Model (mallet) Guidance required

I listened to your advice about larger bits on the rotary and it makes a huge difference in machining time and I am surprised that my little machine seems to handle it ok. Probably my lack of confidence stopped me from trying but the floodgates are open now and there are a few 4th axis projects with...

The Coin Display Tray

A friend had some coins that belonged to his grandfather that were sitting in a box in a cupboard, they had great sentimental value so he asked for me to make a breakfast tray to display them so he would get the pleasure of seeing them everyday.

Re: Brother in Wood

I have watched a few of their videos and was eventually inspired to attempt a simpler version of an end grain cutting board.
