100% Homemade Lathe Although I know other people have built lathes themselves, after an enormous amount of looking on Google, I saw most homemade lathes involve casting and milling, as well as using off the shelf components like chucks and tapers.

I ended up using almost all scrap materials from my basement, so there is no need to follow my materials choices. Because your design choices will vary, this article is more of a record of how I built this one, rather than a manual for building yours. I managed to build this lathe in about a week, with not much more than a cordless drill, a drill press, a jigsaw, and assorted hand tools.

_Patents for Music Instruments_ A few weeks ago, I saw a man on the subway wearing a Tee Shirt that was emblazoned with the Patent Diagram for the Fender Telecaster Guitar I thought that was a great idea.

DIY vintage inspired baubles Last week I showed you the vintage Christmas tree decorations that I bought from Sunbury antiques market and on Sunday I showed you the gorgeous vintage Christmas tree decorations from Citrus and Orange and Loretoidas. Inspired by all these vintage baubles I decided to paint cheap plastic silver baubles with nail polish and dust them in vintage glitter to match my Vintage Christmas theme. I love how the polish gives them a worn look but still gives them a little shimmer and is a great way to use up old nail polish! I was also lucky enough to find some old metal glitter in my craft boxes which adds to their vintage look. If you can't find metal glitter try using a course glitter instead.
