    I made a bunch of these up for use around the band saw. They are small enough they can be controlled fairly well. I think of them as Finger Push Sticks. I've gotten so used to using them, I feel like I'm missing something when I turn the band saw on without one near by. These should also...
  2. Wood Scrolling
    Which is better for making playscale (Barbie, G.I. Joe) furniture, a scroll saw or a band saw?
