Reader ned.ludd posted the above photo to Toolmonger’s Flickr photo pool to share a project he completed recently — turning some new handles for his favorite chisels. They look great, and have reminded me yet again that I should own a wood lathe. I dont’ yet, but it’s on my list. Maybe Ned’ll stop by and share a little more about the project in comments.
If you haven’t joined checked out the photo pool yet, you should. It’s awesome to see everyone’s projects, tools, finds, and so on. Ned’s project is just one of many there, and you can comment, ask questions, and interact with the people who post the photos. It’s a lot of fun.
And if you want to participate but aren’t a “joiner,” don’t worry: I’m not either. I have the free Flickr account, and they don’t ask for too much personal information or your first-born or anything. Once you sign up and get your free account, you can upload photos and add them to the “Toolmonger” group to share. Keep an eye for your pictures in the sidebar picture display — and maybe in a post, too.
Regardless, be sure to check out ned.ludd’s other photos in the pool, including a picture of the finished chisel handles.
