Coal Rake ThingyIf 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.

Jack O'Lantern PropWe 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.
