    Bottle Opener Tongs

    Nice tongs and bottle opener!
  2. Nice work, David! Patience and persistence made everything come together nicely! Thanks for sharing.
  3. Looks like a nice sandblasting cleanup job. What material are you using as the abrasive? I don't have a sandblasting cabinet yet. I so some electrolysis and wirewheeling for now. Thanks for sharing photos. It is always nice to clean up old tools!
  4. Awesome work, Daswolf! Nice, clean look. Time, skill, and patience produce nice results.
  5. Daswulf, nice guitar construction! Always fun to watch your creativity in action! Keep going! Tom
  6. Nicely done! (Both the work itself and giving it to your wife!)
  7. Desmato, nice clean lines and evenness on your tines. I think your aunt is most fortunate! Good job!
  8. Socrates: I remember reading "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." And that can be interpreted to mean if one is motivated enough, one will travel and seek out that teacher......Good luck going forward. It is a fun, rewarding journey. Tom
  9. Very nice work, Ausfire! Nice clean twists! I still need to do a longhorn. Yours are a good standard to aim for..... Thanks for sharing.
  10. Nice persistence, Ausfire! Nice "eye candy" hooks!
  11. Olydemon, Nice variety of openers. I like the curved handles and the chisel work. Tom
  12. Cade-O, I have not used the technique you are describing. I have made wood grain texture and other textures by cutting lines in the hammer face with an angle grinder and then hitting the metal at orange/yellow heat to imprint the texture. Good luck with your project! Tom
  13. Ted, I like the handle you made. Nice twist, proportional, anchor tabs seem a bit on the thin side for me......What did you want to improve on it? Thanks for your photos of swages and leaves, also. Tom
  14. I vote for the steer or whatever animal looking back at the handle. Nice work again, Ausfire!
  15. Turned out great if you ask me. Like the texture!
