Default Hi, First Post for New Member

Tks to whoever it was who started this forum and to all of you who have posted so much great stuff.

I'm retired on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia, and am a member of the Eurobodalla Woodcraft Guild.

My interests include Snooker and Sailing, but woodwork is my prime activity.

Current projects include:

A free standing pool cue rack on a turned column in mahogany.

A pair of mantle pieces with decorative columns and brackets.

A wall cupboard, built with triple mitre joints. This is a primer to a pair of sideboards with triple mitres.

My shed boasts a fair collection of kit, including a router lathe.

Projects there include a pair of vac based dust extractors, one fixed with a DIY wooden cyclone, the other is mobile with a Thiel(?) separator. The two vacs came from Op Shops, ($4 and $10).

I also have it in mind to rebuild the router mount on my lathe to give Y-axis movement.

Oh, and the shed could use a clean up, but that project is on hold right now.

But enough about me. If you are still reading this, thanks for your interest. Now I need to go to the shed- I'm burning daylight!

C ya,
Clemo.

Hi Clemo,
Welcome to the forum. The pool cue rack sounds interesting. Post some pics when you get a chance. What do you mean by a triple mitre? I would like to see an example of one.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I will post pick as soon as I get my 10 posts up - this is No.2.

A triple mitre is also known as a "parson's joint" in some parts. The leg and both rails of a table are all mitred so there is no end grain and held together with biscuits inside the joint. I'll post pics. I have made my pool cue rack in pine and ply as a proof of concept. I will post picks and progress details as I do the build in mahogany. C ya.

Bosox, I didn't mention my football team. We are mid season and 2 & 7! Your Celts must have made the finals. Have you got your bandsaw sorted?

'n tks for the reply.

Bosox, I sail an American built Macgregor 26X sailboat. We cruise her, we don't race. And I sail Access Dinghies with Sailability. They are a little boat used to provide sailing for disabled folk. Our club requires able bodied sailors (like me) to take our disabled folk out on the water.

'n my snooker and pool has an emphasis on pleasure over precision. I'll never be a champ, but I have a lot of fun.

C ya.

Hi Jack, a belated welcome to the forum. Sorry you got missed the first time around.
