I too am a skilled woodworker. Some call it fapping; I call it art.

That was probably the 10th video I watched, not the best one by far.

Do you have any of them still?




I wish I had better woodworking skills, girls like guys with skills.

I'll just fire up the cnc router table at work. Still pretty neat though.

I am constantly evolving my skills.

My turning and bandsaw quality has risen greatly this last two weeks.

A couple nice bandsaw box's, and a ton of turned pens, sylus' screwdrivers, ornaments.

Woodworking is always fun. I've started building up a small shop in my basement. Currently working on some Xmas projects, but I'm finding my south bend metal lathe isn't so good for turning wood (not enough spindle speed). But I don't turn enough stuff to put in a wood lathe. A wood bandsaw would be nice, though, my metal one again isn't the best for this. Currently building a 4/5th scale replica of the Doctor Who "Tardis" police box, with a ~150 bottle wine rack built into it...

I'd like to get into woodworking. Right now, we're heavily involved in Cub Scouts, so my tools have an emphasis on Pinewood Derby. Even my new bandsaw is fairly small (10"), but it has been perfect for PW Derby.

Here is a couple small things I made in my woodshop.
Multi layer box puzzle. Easy to make, hard to put back after you dump it out.

I don't have the patience for that. I think i'll just get a CNC router. I have a wood shop, but when you do it for a living, you really don't want to do it on the spare time also lol.

Buddy out in Vegas bought one this spring, 8' x 12' table, makes me want to move out there.

I sold my Cnc router last year. It was fun and profitable but I wanted the room to put my hoist in.

That is pretty cool but I don't know if I would call it spectacular since I think this is spectacular:

My husband built and hand carved this about 25 years ago when he first started out as a cabinet maker. Some of his creations have been pretty spectacular over the years.

I should post a different video, I was referring to some of his other videos but just finished watching that one and then posted it.

I am going to watch that one now.
