    Survival Kit

    This is a survival kit I made for a Boy Scout who has been helping me with the Cub Scout group I am in-charge of. I didn’t want to do something that he would hang on the wall for a few years and forget about. I wanted to make something that he would say, “Heck yeah! This is Cool! I am gonna use...

    Playing with colors on pens...

    I have been wanting to play with some colors for the pens I have been working on. I have looked into some of the stains, dyes, and food/clothing color things out there, but then I remembered the power of a sharpie! No mixing, no waiting, no mess, no fuss! I used mahogany in the first pic, with...

    So, after ten years of woodworking...

    ...I turned my first pens. I have no idea why I waited this long. :dontknow: I did 4 slims and 2 .50 cals. Awosome time. I had to grind a spade bit down to a 7mm (forgot to get one...) and my pen mandrel was the wrong size (1/4" not 7mm). Oh well. Still had fun. Thanks for looking!

    Hey guys! This is still a work in progress (attaching weights and wheels), but I had to go for the Michael Keaton Bat Mobile. One of my friends used to work in a car bodyshop, and told me that the finish wasn't good enough unless you could count your teeth in the reflection. I had to go back...
