For a classical, decorative feel, adorn your clocks with these serpentine hands. Available in a black finish, each set includes hour, minute and second hands (second hand does not feature the spade design). Normally, the minute hand's sweep (measured from the center of the hole to the tip) should extend to the middle of a clock's numbers or minute marks. In this case, it measures 3-1/8".
This plan is your guide to making a simple, functional and beautiful table. The design is modeled after the original farm table at which Julia Child and her husband Paul ate most of their meals. It is now on display at the Smithsonian where it so fascinated Mario Rodriguez that he created this plan for reproducing a similar version. Dispensing with typical leg-to-apron joinery, the table has shouldered brindle joints that lock the legs to a pair of long aprons to eliminate racking. Three dovetailed cross rails link the apron, along with the H-stretcher system, to make it rock solid. Follow this detailed plan to complete all the steps for turning the legs on a lathe, cutting the stopped dovetail sockets in the aprons, fitting the stretchers, assembling the undercarriage, and applying the final finish.

Take a close look at the edge of this carbide insert and you'll realize it's not actually square. Instead, each of its four edges is slightly crowned with a 2" radius. This subtle change makes the cutter excellent for smoothing cuts. No sharpening required — just rotate to a new edge when the previous edge gets dull, and replace the cutter when needed.2" radius for smooth finishing cuts.Solid carbide for a long life.Measures 1/2" x 1/2".Factory sharpened—ready for use right out of the box.Note: this carbide cutter is not compatible with a standard square turning tool.
