Much has been written about the importance of a true and flat plane sole as a key to achieving optimal results during planning. Premium planes come with a very flat sole, do not need any interventions, and are ready for …Source

round magnetic dice

round magnetic diceMy only regret with this project is that I didn't think of it first. Gotta give credit to Oliveir Gomis. Stumbled upon his https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pDTXd8wZ80 and was determined to have one for myself. My first sphere was a fail (we'll call it a practice piece) but I learned from it and the second time around was much better. And since my tools were inferior to his, (old craftsman 12” lathe) I was forced to come up with a different method to make the dish. For that I made a jig/sled for my angle grinder. Mounted a long threaded rod to center of disc so that I could spin it to raise higher as I dug out the center. Roughed it with an arbortech turbo plane disc and finished with sanding disc, then fine finished sanded with ros.Didn't have any dimensions so I had to guess. Looks like my size ratio between ball/dish varies from his. My sphere is 5” dia. and dish is 19” dia. here's minehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myrST41Rci4

Box for miter saw

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Box for miter sawI've got two miter box saws, one of them somewhat dull, and the other pretty dull, and I need to ship them off for sharpening (still haven't found someone here in Santa Fe), one at a time, and rather than wrap the saw in bubble-wrap and cardboard, and have the USPS try hard to destroy it, I figured I'd make a box. A few pieces of pine later, and I've got a shipping box that should hold up pretty well, though it is probably twice as heavy as the saw.The saw fits into the box with the blade guard on, and the handle to the left (and spine down – guess I should've rotated that picture the other way). The cutout in one side of the box allows room for the blade guard in the box. Then the lid (which has breadboard ends just because I didn't have a long enough ten-inch-wide board in the leftovers pile) will get screwed on with a dozen or so screws. I'll tape on a label, and away it'll go.Constructed of 3/4 pine. Final (closed) dimensions are about 36×10x3 inches (90×25 x 8 cm). Joinery is just butt joints, glued and screwed. The screws that are meant to be removed to open the box are slotted. The rest are Robertson drive.Finished with a coat of linseed oil.Guess I really should set up my saw vise and get to sharpening my own saws one of these days
