Unintended Steampunk Mallet

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Unintended Steampunk MalletFirst off. Credit for this idea came from fellow Lumberjock camp764 who found the idea on Pinterest, where he suspects it originally came from Woodsmith magazine.As with my other projects posted here on Lumberjocks -always give credit where credit's due.I'm not a fan of the Steampunk art form at all. And this wasn't my intention to call this Steampunk in any way. But it slowly came out to me after I took the pictures & submitted them to our club online editor, that it does have a retro look with the shiny polished bronze rough casting for a mallet head to it.Not intentional but the retro Steampunkishness look of this mallet is slowly growing on me.Fun project that got started by a now online based woodturning club's monthly President's Challenge. Which has been part of switching from a local face-to-face monthly meeting format where we used to drool over the other member's newest turnings, talk shop and the related problems, advice, and solutions we all can share.And now to a web based monthly meeting format to stay in touch with those club member now spread out on both coasts who so choose to meet virtually each month to talk everything woodturning till it's safe to come out from hiding from the world physically.I just posted details of the backstory & the build process, (warts and all), here.Enjoy,-Woodstock

Scroll saw projects

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Scroll saw projectsI've been building models for a while now and filled the house up twice I would think as my wife has been giving the older ones away to make room. lol
Have been using a Wen scroll saw and it got the work done but was wanting something better so got a Dewalt scroll saw and it's a whole different beast.
I'm now able to use much smaller blades [no pins required] and the change over from one hole to another is just so much better. I'm talking seconds instead of minutes.I say all this to show why now I've switched gears and playing with scroll saw projects.
I's something new and interesting to learn and gives me a chance to make things my better half can appropriate and enjoy.
As you may have guessed we love cats. LOL
