Not at all, although I was chicken and only took 0.020" per pass.

How did you have that boring head mounted to cut that radius?

I bought a cheap Chinese boring head with an R8 shank and turned it down to fit in a boring bar holder. The nice thing about this is I can switch from and inside to outside radius depending on which hole I put the cutting tool in.



I signed up for night classes in machining at a tech school starting next week so I can figure out how to use the lathe and mill properly. So far it's been trial and error.

I made a weird cabinet this past fall. The first of many I hope. But probably never again a red, white and blue star-shaped cabinet lined with U.S. history maps.

The cabinet is made of salvaged pine and plywood… and it's kinda huge.




Oh yeah… and with a couple "secret" nooks.

I was given a decent tripod back around Thanksgiving, but it didn't have the mounting plate

So I had a bit of extra time and a nice size chunk of aluminum, so I whipped this up:





I still need to work on the camera lock down, but the it fits into the tripod nicely, even works the plate locking mechanism.

The coolest part is I made the dove tail bit myself out of a piece of drill rod, like a dummy I didn't get a picture of it.

Here's something I created last Christmas to display all the ornaments the Red Sox have sent over the years.

Still thinking about lights. Any suggestions for something that'll look good and be battery powered (i.e., not require it to have a cord dangling off the table)?

Nahhh, just some trays I got off a mate who was throwing them out of his electrician-van. Handy for the loose stuff
