I like to do everything.
No, really, everything.
I've been hoping to be an artist when I grow up and am still working on it. I currently have as my medium WOOD.
I'm also a photographer, Ex-techno-geek, industrial control panel builder, amateur plumber, home maintenance tech, and other things I can't remember. (Give me a break, I'm OLD)
Other media in which I work in these days is digital art, photo restoration, drawings, animations and videos.
See, I told you, I like to do everything.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! Glad you found the forums already. The forums are a great place to get woodworking advice and to give out some wisdom as well. I am always getting new ideas from the project posts and I also find the videos instructive. I hope you find the site as useful as I do.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

G’day Don. I’m glad you liked the rings I made. I really enjoyed making them.
To see a more detailed explanation check out Scrappys work, or look up “segmented rings without lathe”. He’s the Master when it comes to these kind of rings. Anyway, thankyou for your comments, take care, regards Hagrid.

Hey bro, a trammell arm is just a router on the end of a compass arm for cutting radius. I guess I said Tambor arm in my post, and I don’t know where I got that from….

#15 posted 1587 days ago

OK, I know what a trammel is. I’ve been using them for years, and not with just routers on the ends.
