JOAT, I've seen examples of your woodworking 'skills' and I can't
imagine that you would ever need one. Bought or otherwise.
ROTFLMAO You don't actually think you've seen everything I've
made, do you?
But, as at happens, I do have a saw sled. That I made. It works
quite well too, accurate. Perhaps you saw pictures. The one with the
thick base, and 2X4s, all painted yellow, with lightning bolts on it.
LOL I think that's the 3d I made. I'll eventually replace it, but it's
still accurate, so no rush. I'm not half as bothered by it's looks as a
lot of people were. You don't think those lightning bolts were for me,
do you? LMAO I decided not to paint the next one, because I changed
this one so much, and the paint made gluing a bit trying.
I'm fairly sure I never posted any shots of my wooden cam clamps,
or turned mallets, especially the ones with the homemade oil finish
(from my cooking oil finish experiments) - those are actually pretty.
Probably won't. In truth tho, neither actually take much "skill",
anybody could dupe them, but they do look nice - and work great.
There's links for cam clamp making in the archives, but, if not, a quick
google should turn some up.
If I wasn't having fun woodworking, I wouldn't do it.
Just because it's not nice doesn't mean it's not miraculous.
