This is really a ton of fun! I filmed the process with this one and I will release the video this week! Getting in the Christmas Spirit!


Christmas Tree Ornament

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

I gave “turning” a Christmas tree (Christmas tree) ornament at the drill press w/ rasps. I handed it to the kids and asked if they knew what it was.  Unfortunately, all I received was a blank stare.  I’m going to try making another and see if I can improve it.



Template Copier

The idea for this mortiser add-on has been running through my head for a few weeks now. I wasn’t sure how well it would work and I couldn’t resist trying out the idea any longer.




The templates are secured by the two bolts pictured above.  An aluminum stylus rides against the template as the mortiser is moved forward and back.  So far I am pleased with the results and I can see several practical uses for this add-on.  The add-on will not get in the way when I need to use it for a standard mortiser.  Yippeee!
