Default My own drawing,, tooth shaped toothpick holder

I looked for one on the net and did find one, but when I went to purchase it, it did not check out when I hit submit so I tried to draw out my own. This is what I came up with. It is compound cut on poplar wood. I have more work to do on it but I do think it is turning out nice. I will have to make the hole larger to hold a few more tooth picks. right now it only holds one. Any way not too bad if I say so myself....It is so cold this a.m. and we had frost on the ground. Wished I had gone down to turn on the heat like I usually do but didn't. It is sunny out and will warm up later. Enjoy the picture...

Yeah it's working out nice. I used a small drill bit to drill the hole for the toothpicks in the middle of the tooth and then used a bit a size larger. So now it holds a few more tooth picks. Will go one more size up but I think that will be all. My leg is hurting now so will stop for a spell. Good thing I have a place to sit in the shop... Take care

Saw that pattern in the "other" magazine awhile back. I want to try that as soon as I get the saw to turn back on.

I don't get the "other " magazine but maybe one day I will get a copy at the newsstand and see what it is. Hope you get your saw working real soon Dan. I put tape on my switch on my saw when I went down this a.m. to keep the sawdust out of it and just use the foot switch on mine. Works really great. Will try to finish up the tooth tomorrow. Sis just got home so the three of us are here now. Going to lie down for awhile so take care.

Fay,

I don't get the "other" magazine either and have not seen it around here on any of the newstands. But a few years ago I bought a bunch of the magazines, and other patterns at an auction. Also got a box full of various clamps, and something for gluing frames together. It's a long strap with a ratchet on it, has 8 metal right angles and you place one in each of the four corners of your frame and ratchet the strap until it tightens around the angles and pulls the glued mitered corners together .

The saw's going to have to wait until I get some answers on my back. They think the last vertebrae above my tail bone is sliding around and pinching a nerve and/or hitting some ligaments. It makes for long days sometimes since I can't stand or sit for very long. But I'm also doing everything I can to avoid an MRI. I think that's another reason it's taking me so long to finish the remodel on our upstairs bathroom.

Sorry to hear about your back Dan. I hope you will be fine and get the issue taken care of. A sore back is not fun at all. My leg is better too after that fall, but today I noticed the bruises are clear down to the middle of my leg, not just in the knee area. You'll be back scrolling before you know it... Take care

Nice work, Fay,
In reference to the "Other" magazine, I don't really understand why it has to be
referred to in that manner. If this site is afraid of competition or comparison, perhaps they should reconsider their business strategy.
We are all adults and should not be ashamed to repeat the name of a reputable
magazine.
Just my honest opinion.
God Bless! Spirithorse
