This was my first ‘big’ project about two years ago. My wife makes jewelry and was wanting to expand her sales. She had been looking into buying some crosses for her stuff (I’ll put more of those up later). I told her “I can cut you some!” This was my excuse to start buying stuff. I found my little Delta band saw in a pawn shop for $40. It looked near new. I roughed them up and sanded them with my little B&D Wizard. It has one little 3.6V battery and a small accessory kit. I had a mystery can of finish to put on there and viola! a few sand/finish cycles later and she had some crafts to sell.

Neat Idea!

I see you have applied the first law of woodworking- “Every new project requires the purchase of a new tool” ;^)

Knoob, these are nice crosses. And, like Lew said, I am glad to see that your wife is convinced that in order to expand her craft inventory you need to add to your tool collection.

Yeah I got me a good woman! She encourages me to do more. She understands I need to buy the ‘occasional’ tool. She’s the same way with her jewelry making. We both get excited about going to Sears or Harbor Freight. She bought me the smaller drill press.
