Stitching Pony

This is how I made a quick and easy stitching pony that can hold leather pieces while stitching or can act as a general purpose third hand to hold small projects so you can work on them with both your hands.

Drill Lathe

I have an old, cheapo drill that I rarely use so I decided to turn it into a lathe. The lathe is made from 8 pieces of wood mostly 3/4″ x 3 1/5″ boards with one part made from a 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ board. It’s simple and easy and this video shows how I did it. It works quite well for turning cork.
