Before woodworking and my wife the love of my life was playing pool. I was obsessed with it actually. I even bought a 7×10 mini metal lathe to replace cue tips and ferruls (high profit margin for easy work!). I never did get into actual cue making though as I knew the tools required to do a good job were a lot over budget for me. Here’s a long video showing a little behind the scenes action at Ginacue. Probably one of if not the best custom cue maker out there. LOTS of money invested in this shop. The video is long but if you have time to kill dive right in!


Here’s a super easy DIY project that you can batch out for a dozen or so Christmas gifts. High in personal touch, low in cost…$3!!! Sounds like a perfect time saving gift to me. (click the image)

Rock-n H Woodshop

This is a nice gun case! It’s also a simple design that can lead to use in various other projects. It doesn’t have to be a gun case if you don’t want it to be!

Patrick’s Work Shop

Patrick shows us a very cool way of making stationary tools mobile in this one. This is something that can bet adapted to any stationary tool really. Great idea.

Here’s another vido from Patrick. It’s a thin rip push block that rides on top of your table saw fence. Patrick comes up with some pretty awesome stuff. Subscribe if you haven’t already!

Frank Howarth

Frank has a way of making an otherwise bland utilitarian project very entertaining with his presentation style. I always watch Frank’s videos with a huge smile.

Alain Vaillancourt
