I haven't posted in a while but was busy this last weekend.

The wife asked me to make something "pretty". Any normal 100% red blooded male I know cringes from this word.

We don't know how to define this female adjective that seems to encompass every known male word by default and most times we fail to understand the quest.







This also reminded me why I don't like turning plastic



The Pen was the challenge and accepted by the requester. GO SEAHAWKS!

The Spalted Maple box is her Xmas present that has a Blue Topaz Necklace. Only two coats of Tru-Oil and needs a few more.

Not Wood, Pen or Rod Building related but very now and again the wife comes up with these ideas that I can’t just find a way out of.

How did you glue the dishes and cups together? That is out of this world, dude! kicking.gif

Ron et all ... thanks

Harry, it actually two lamps and is there a Missive in the works this year?

John, I used Fusion Poly Urethane glue I've been playing around with but the purpose is just a couple spots on each plate/cup and it is to keep them from moving once I've assembled them.

I used a 1/2" diamond hole saw to cut holes in each piece and then a 24" piece of brass lamp rod I cut for each lamp.

I would have just bought cheap lamps at these trash stores but alas no lamps with long enough rods.
