That was interesting. I'd love that saw. It's so quiet.

Dead simple but effective candle holder. 8" x 3" x 1" piece of wood, 1 hole for hinge, length of dowel as hinge pin, washers to separate pieces, 6 holes for candles and 10 cuts on the band saw. Plus sanding and finish to suit.

That looks so professional, Tank. Did you design it?

No. I got a book of weekend woodwork projects and that was in it :)

I thought it was the latest product of your workshop skills!

Well I do have two new toys that facilitated their production :)

Sorry, I misunderstood: so you actually did make the candle holder, but it wasn't your own design. I am so slow sometimes (or usually, you must be thinking). Very nice new toys.

Another little project. A candle nook. It has a space for a box of matches. Can I find a box of matches to fit it? Can I f**k! Apparently all matches are long to light BBQs now and smokers use lighters.

 :geezer!:



I had an old vacuum cleaner. I bought a 30L polypropylene barrel and a cyclone unit. 99% of the dust and shavings go into the barrel and the tiny fraction left gets filtered out. Cost about a third of what an assembled dust extraction unit would have. Works very well.

Of course it adds an air of practical engineering skill :rofl:

Really?

These don't seem too long,

and they've got a pic of a ship on them.



Is this merely a disingenuous attempt to justify the purchase of a Burleigh & Stronginthearm match shortening saw?

It sounds like a good enough reason to me. The name Burleigh & Stronginthearm makes me want to buy one as well.

I'm trying to stop spending with Amazon! And I already have a Burleigh & Stronginthearm match shortening saw! It does have other uses :)

That's Discworld marketing for you.
