My first time posting, Hi to one and all, I have been an avid reader since December 2012. I started working (playing) with wood on the 28/11/12, after buying some wood working machines. It has always been a desire to do wood working. I decided to try, and i am loving it. I have a mini lathe , a band saw, a scroll saw, table saw, well I bought everything i needed.
The 1st Box is my attempt at a mitre box, the wood is JapCedar. Is a salt box for my wife.
The 2nd is a band saw box. Plain old SA Pine.
The 3rd is a turned bowl. Yellow wood, Lovely to work with.
The 4th is my version of a Bird Box seen on Lumber Jock, Thank you original maker.The chimney is burned with a mini blow torch. It will not be used as a bird box, but as a “hide things away box” The chimney and a few strips of wood are removable.
The 5th are candle stick holders. Wood unknown.
The 6th my attempt at scroll sawing. No an easy thing to do. I nearly gave up, I broke 15 pin blades. Then I bought some pinless blades (240), I have not looked back OR broken one yet .Getting better every day, and loving it.

Thanks for all projects posted, you guys are skillful.

Comments and advice welcome.

Thank you. Yes, I have been busy, I am fortunate to have my business at home. We have a daycare. So I play and the staff do the work, retirement IS fun.

You’re off to a great start! Your boxes look great, and I really like the bird you scroll-sawed. Keep up the good work!
