    No shed here...Ah, the fresh air, the sunshine, the birds chirping. My outdoor nut and saddle shaping station. By the way, I resisted shelling out money for the StewMac shaping vice. Now I love it. Useful for all sorts of little holding jobs and sometimes just getting a grip on stuff is half the battle.

    Lately I find I use a 75mm (3 inch) "drill press" vice for all those fiddly holding jobs like bridges and saddles. It has a wide enough base that I can hold it steady with my other hand most times.
    If I want it held firmer I clamp it to the bench. I don't think I have used it on the actual drill press. A cheap $10 hobby vice was what I used to use for similar jobs.

    That is such a pretty wood, the binding really goes good with it.

    Yard sale find I picked up yesterday. Tested it today and it works smoothly, and sooooo quiet compared to my electric. I was wanting a Dynabrade for a long time but this DA runs comparably. I asked the guy how much for his air tools and he said, "A buck a piece." lol... I grabbed this and a grinder that also runs like a champ. It won't touch a ukulele until it gets a new pad though. Don't forget the yard sales, comrades!

    For me I am feeling a little bummed. Just realized that a neck I was working on for a tenor ukulele is about 5/16 too short..
