Caboose

Furnished content.

CabooseHello fellow LumberJocks- Just finished the Toys and Joys caboose to go with the Stem Engine I recently completed. My son wanted it red so I just used a piece of scrap 2X6. I believe if your going to paint, don't waste oak or any other hardwood. I roughed sanded it to try to give it an aged look. As always all comments are welcome. Next up a freight car.

Thin strips on Festool CMS tablesaw jigsThin strips on Festool CMS tablesaw
jigsHere two thin strip jigs I made yesterday, specifically made for my Festool CMS table saw.They are made from standard aluminium profiles, these happens to fit the CMS, so I just cut into the profiles with the table saw and attached the ball bearings with bolts, that I sanded down in height of the heads.So simple and fast to make, just ball bearings, profiles, washers, bolts and nuts . ;-)You can see my other strip jigs, the thin strippers as I called them here: https://www.lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/129568
Pictures:
1. Strip jig 1 on the Festool CMS table saw.

3. Side close up on version 1 ball bearing.
4. Strip jig 2 on the Festool CMS table saw.
5. Side close up on version 2 ball bearings.

Hope it can be to some inspiration, perhaps even a thin strip jig.Best thoughts,MaFe

Antique copper pen.

Furnished content.

Antique copper pen.Hi,
I am away from home for three days (in day two) and after the meetings, sitting in a hotel room managed to put this video together. I forgot to wipe my lathe clean after spraying the chemicals on the copper and as you can see, I ended up with a patina lathe as well. You may also notice a bunch of paint on my fingers.
At the same time that I was making the pen, I did my first ever painting which can be seen as the background in the picture. Subsequent paintings produced disastrous results. Unfortunately, I didn't video the painting or document the process; oh, well!
Process.
