Default That Time of Year Again

Well it is time to make and give a present to my fellow woodworkers in our woodworking club. This year I made each a beam compass for when they have to mark a circle larger than a regular scissor compass will extend. Might not use it often, but when they need one they will have one hanging on the wall. And when the grand kid comes over and sees it and asks Grandpa "What is that thing, Grandpa".

The first picture is the mock-up and the rest the build.

You must like them a lot! That's a lot of work.

What wood did you use?

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

You are a generous man, Herb, and do great production work. I always enjoy seeing how you set up to do repetitive tasks.

Those are way nicer than the one I have.

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.

Well done and a great gift.

Now that you've got the production run down ever thought about selling one or two? Probably not a good idea as that would turn a great gift into a job and who wants to work.
