    Here's my entry for now. Found the pattern in a Wood magazine.

          Looks really nice. I agree it's going to be hard to put that first scratch on it!
          Tell me this: What are all the mortises on cabinet maker benches for??
          Thanks.

            Great looking left-hand bench, Lefty!!

            Skip: the mortises in the top are for "bench dogs". These may be round or square. They are basically adjustable height hardwood or metal pegs that stop your wood from sliding around while you work on it. If you will notice, the vice jaws also have them. By clamping the edge of the wood between the ones on the vice jaw and the ones on the table, you can hold a board flat and secure without anything sticking above the surface you are planing or scraping. They can also be used to clamp boards when edge gluing.
            Some benches also have a skirt around the edge with holes in them. By sticking a peg or bench clamp in the hole, you can support a long board on edge with one end clamped in the vice and the peg holding up the weight of the long board. This works well when jointing edges with a hand plane.

              Hey guys,

              Here is a telescope that I designed and built last year. My primary hobby is Amateur Astronomy and mirror making. Woodworking is actually a new thing for me that started with the building of this telescope. I am currently working on a 12.5" mirror which will go into a scope built similarly to this one.

              Building the first telescope was what got me bit by the woodworking bug.

                  Now your monicer makes sense. That's a cool looking telescope. Is that considered a reflecting or refracting telescope. Not sure what the difference is but thought I sounded smart with those words...

                  leer13,
                  Nice job. Have you put them to use? I may have to try your finish, where do you find tung oil? I made a cutting board for my daughter and she doesn't want to use it. Oh well, women.

                    It is considered a reflecting telescope because the primary mirror at the bottom reflects the light up to the second mirror that reflects it into the eyepiece.

                    It is one of my passions. There is nothing like looking at the stars with a mirror and telescope you made with your own hands

                          scrambler,

                          That's some nice work. I like the idea of keeping everything in one place for the gameboy. I remember when my boys were small they would fight over the lighted lens attachments, even tho they both had one, because they could find only 1. Although these have evolved since my boys were young. Lets see more...
