Ever tried cornhole? If not then you need too. It’s pretty addicting around a group a friends. Great for those tailgating days or outdoor parties. I made a little video showing how I make my cornhole boards, maybe it will inspire you to make a set for yourself and some for your friends! Enjoy…..
Many old planes and tools featured brass elements such as screw caps, adjustment wheels ext ext. In most cases you cant even tell that its brass because of how dirty it is. Most all of the old Stanley planes have brass nuts on the knob and tote and a brass adjustment wheel. There are other makes that featured brass nuts and wheels as well.

Long story behind this entry. My Grandfather was veteran of WWII…He and 4 of his brothers. So he and his brothers equal 5 total. He left high school early to go and be with his brothers in the war.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to make a box and display for his burial flag and all his medals until now. This one is not the one I...

I made several of these for Christmas gifts this year. They aren’t difficult, and they seemed to be well received. They use a fairly small amount of material, so they may be the perfect project for that pretty little chunk of wood you just can’t throw away. Start with ¾” material. The blank for the dish is about 3” diameter, and the post is ¾” wide by about 3-4” long. Put the post blank on the lathe and use a roughing gouge to turn it round. Now...
