Hi, guys
last June one of the guild member and fellow lumber jocks Less Hastings presented a program for the guild “making a federal card table”. He demonstrated the tools and techniques and the Steve Latta DVD’s. I was really impressed and I decided I was going to give it a try, so I ordered the DVD’s from Lie Nielsen and started making the tools. I want to thank Less for his presentation he is a fine craftsman also one of the guild member Dan for helping me drilling the parallel holes for the radius cutter and a coworker Joe for making the threaded holes for the radius cutter. The other tools I made them myself, the woods are cherry, purple heart and walnut.
Any comment is well appreciated.
Thanks
Regards

Really impressive custom tools. The brass and cherry combination looks great. I especially like the radius cutter, it looks really professional.

Nice work Boris! Looks like they came out really nice, I see they work great to! Bring them to the next meeting and show’em off. I’ll be looking forward to seeing your first project using them.

I bought these tools for doing some inlay. I know you saved a bundle. Plus, your radius cutter is prettier than mine. Good for you.
