Poor handle didn't have a chance, broke right in the middle... See, woodworkers live dangerously Makes me feel smart that I am wearing a respirator and eye protection.

    I'll go back to the fighting zone tomorrow, wish me luck!

No idea why this cedar piece went that high, I have a few dozen pieces that are better-looking. Or maybe I am just too cheap...

    Thanks Pierre. That sounds like it is strong and fast-acting? I just wanted to get some 5min Devcon for quick jobs, but it this is fast, I'll be happy to try it out. I used Acraglass on my current batch and so far it looks great and holds up really well.

    I applied for an extension, still have to figure some things out. Turbotax only taks me so far, I think there are other options. Never heard of section 179, have to look into this, thanks!

    Polishing is a bit much, I have a few belts in 600grit and 800 grit, even a few in 1200 grit. Problem is, they either clog up within seconds or they heat up the pieces in seconds, so I don't use them very often (the 1200 not at all). 600 grits works if you have a very light touch and clean the belt obsessively.

    He's at it again?! ARGHHH! I'm always tempted to buy his stuff because it's so pretty... but I have no use for it lol. I've sent so many pieces to Adam it's not funny.

    Finished up a few tonight. I'm not proud, some of them have taken forever... But it's moving forward. These are all ready for shipping (well, I hope I'll see some money first )

    What are you doing up? Go sleep!

    Good point, I hadn't even thought about that. Quite a range in materials and sizes. Btw, the top left one will go out to you tomorrow (for Tim), togehter with the micro drills and some wood (mac nut, mango, ironwood).

    Dang! So many beautiful handles, but that bright red/pink one in the 2nd photo is the attention grabber.
