Chess Pieces on the Spindle Sander

chess pieces in a spindle sander showdown

I have long since wanted to make chess pieces in one way or another. Then, when Meyer Maschinenhandel approached me and asked whether I had an idea to showcase one of their spindle sanders (the Record Power BBS2). I had just the right piece in mind – 32 pieces, to be exact. Using a square […]

Turn a Shot Dragon [Tower of Shots]

Stackable shot glasses.

Want to turn something useful and stackable, following an easy pattern? Then the Dragon Shots are for you, and you can completely disregard the dragon part! Make beverage holders on the lathe, easy to store because they stack, and easy to customize because, well, they are made of wood. Please share this, and remember to […]


Textured logo.

Improvised Thickness Sander – Quick & Dirty

In a project I am working on I had to flatten some segmented rings, and used the method I am showing you here, using a spindle sander or a sanding drum. I hope you find it useful, and if you do, please share it with your friends! Enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!

Frustrating Garden Tool Storage

I have had my share of fails so I do not expect a project to work as expected (although my expectations resulting from that are a bit of a conundrum at this point), but even something that does not actually fail can turn out to be very frustrating. I hope you can draw something from this […]

Te-Fiti Tealight Holder – Fail!

A failed te-fiti tea light holder.

Not every tea light holder is a success. I had high hopes for this Te-Fiti inspired tea light holder, and these hopes went up in smoke, literally. I hope you can take some of the ideas and techniques I used and make something that does not fail! Enjoy, and remember to be Inspired!
