I replaced my worn out push sticks and made some extra accessories for my larger push block. I also made a few for Brandon my Son in Law to make sure he can work safely as well.I must say I just love my 14 inch Grizzly bandsaw G0555LX, it checks all my boxes.
We had a pumpkin carving contest amongst our friends at Halloween.Once I decided what design to carve I decided I needed a prop. After a couple hours I had a knife made from wood. I traced one of the wife's kitchen knives. A couple people thought it was a real knife at first glance.Used Poplar stained gray for the blade and some Cherry for the scales.Best thing is that I sold it to one of our friends for a gift for her brother in law since he is the type of person that will go all out on his Halloween costume.
If you are in your shop and keep the garage door up. Your neighbors begin to notice you are making things. And then wonder… can he make me a (__)? My next-door, neighbor who is originally from Uruguay, asked me to make him a 'coal rake' for his home-built grill/bbq (last picture). His grill is a work in progress. So, this is what I came up with for him. Notice I stretched my little lathe to its very limit on length. Had to use the drill press for the hole/slot.The handle is made out of hard maple and is sixteen inches in length. The tool as a whole is 36 inches in length.
