I generally use pencils, but last year a co-worker came to me and said “I know you like to build things in your wood shop, but have you ever done any working with metal?” He then showed me a scribe someone had given him to use in HIS shop (he’s an amateur blacksmith). I was interested in trying these and so I put my creative side to pondering…. And within about two weeks I had made about 20 of them. I gave him 10 to share with his blacksmithing buddies and have given ...
I keep seeing these posts pop up more often than not about the scribed line for dovetails, should you leave them on? should you scrap/sand them off? Some say it tells the joint was hand made, Others rightfully so say that the piece itself tells that it was hand made…. Should you make them with a scriber? Or a pencil? A pencil line is easier to remove, but harder to line up to as you are relying on eye sight, Whereas a scribed line with a knife is a no brainer since you just rest your...

My wife liked the Zebra Wood one… I got the Curly Maple… (big grin) Here are four pictures of them… Steve, th...
Pencil Tip 3! Another method of pencil sharpening. Thank you Gatorjim for the idea! I hope that you enjoy watching.
In this wide world, you just never know how different things will connect us together. Throw in the mix a crazy internet full of stuff, and we more often “bump” into others with similar interests. I have used Shed deer and elk antlers to make a variety of things for several years now, and finding the sheds was my biggest problem. Once I had an antler, I could make something with it. But finding out where a “buck” would drop his prize is another problem entirely. ...
