Couple of old cheap guns I have had very bad plastic grips on the pistol and the gunstock was homemade out of pine and had broke.I carved the shotgun stock out of 8/4 cherry. Its not quite done yet. The grips for the pistol I carved out of scrap curly hardmaple. The guns are practically worthless so I thought I would ‘dress them up’ a little.

I put this in a forum a few days ago and wanted to add it here for everyone. I am on the mailing list for a local auction company that specialises in estate auctions. They have a sale comeing up on Oct 31st and Nov 7th that has at least 9 Shopsmiths in it. They will be selling at least 3 of the Shopsmiths on the Oct 31st day and the rest on Nov 7th. Here is a link for pics of the sale items. http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewPicture&friendID=423752127&...
I met a gentleman last week and we got to talking about wood. Turns out he used to work the wood and “still had some walnut” he says. “If you want it, you can have it” Well, my week went by and today my wife and I had to go down to San Diego, so I decided to give Butch a call. “OKay” he says, “I’ll dig it out from the corner of the garage, oh, and bring a truck, because this won’t all fit into a car trunk, that is if you want it all.”...
Sitting With Some Old Friends ….sitting with some old friends,and what is this need that shakes my be-ing,till from the shards of my distant past,comes the dust storm of ever present wood-chips…. ….these friends have sat patiently now,as the years pass and seasons come and go,their numbers all-ways on the increase-decrease,but with patience and expectancy they abide…. ….my friends have with-stood the ages of change,knowing that in these times-these too shall p...
I was recently asked by a friend to build an entertainment center. No big deal, right? Simple case, some shelves, etc. etc. The one part of this request that has me scratching my head a bit is this: Mount the tv on a vertical stand so that it can be hidden in the table when it’s not needed. He was thinking about having a hand crank or some other manual mechanism to raise the tv. Pneumatic shocks to assist. While that seems possible, motorized mounts are around and seem like a ...
Well they came! Sears item 22219 Wide Table Leg Kit for Craftsman model 22811 table saws. Now to refresh the memory of those that don’t recall, the 22811 was a Ryobi BT3000 table saw, with a Craftsman label on the front, and a different hand wheel. The leg kit is a functional match for the no longer available Ryobi accessory for my BT3100. I do say functional as the leg kit is NOT a cosmetic match, as the BT3100 stand legs splay instead of take a trip straight down, and the paint ...
A while back I showed a small sample of how the Legacy Ornamental Mill works with a small spiral cane.Turning those little things is a pure pleasure and I do it often. But sometimes the demand is for a large spiral column.This mill, model 1500EX is a long bed machine, signified by the EX in the model number. So I made the columns outside the front entry to our house/knit shop. But there is an inherent problem with large, solid columns. They split.No matter what material is used (plastic...
An interesting thing happened this morning in the shop. The straight cutting guide I made yesterday for my Skilsaw didn’t cut straight. I trimmed one edge of my plywood top blank and when I laid a straightedge against the cut surface it would rock about 1/32”. Investigating, I found that my edge guide had a slight bow in it, about 1/64-1/32” in a 48” span. I assumed I had erred in its construction, normally a valid assumption, and set about to make another one. I had a...
