    so today in woodshop i was bored just like every other day, the class blows. for everyone out their wondering if they should take it, dont!!! its fun at first, but then when you don't feel like doing the projects it sucks cause you actually have to do physical work...

    well yeah like i said i was just bored and made a bead in less than 5 minutes, i don't have dreads yet but it was just something to do to pass the time...

    like i said i made in honestly in less than 5 minutes.

    i know, the whole is kind of small and off centered.

    i haven't really seen a lot of beads before and the one i saw i tried to remember what it looked like the best i could.

    so yup thats it

    i look forward to my shop class every day. idk what your guys problems are. shop is sweet as hell. but then again, i actually joined to do the stuff, not get an easy grade. And my teacher is awesome. there is only one require project. (BreadBox)

    we had 6 required projects -

    a clock
    a pen
    a pen box (i guess this could go with pen, so 5 total projects)
    a coat rack/shelf
    a storage box
    and a picture frame

    now we can make what ever we want, and i am on my picture frame and i fucking broke the top part, pissed offffff....:mad::mad:

    thoes are all easy.... except maby the clock, depending on what kind.
    i wish we had required projects, it would give me something to do. I just finished a cue stick rack/ stand that ive been working on basically all year and now idk what to do.
    I wanna make an adirondak chair probably but i dont think we have enough wood.............

    picture frame would be quick too. especially if you have like crown moulding already, you can just cut it up and nail/glue it.

    Woodwork is great! Not that I'm good at it, but I love it. The woodwork at my school was awful though. With the first teacher we did pretty much nothing. Pointed sticks and stuff... The second teacher was crazy. Gave us quizes... I made a bead a while ago, but I'm not wearing it since my dreads are too young.

    yeah woodshop is an okay class just a bunch of stoners and stuff in there make it fucking gay.

    so i am like basically done with my picture frame, and now i can do whatever i want.

    i am going to make a bench that you can like sit on it will be pretty quick maybe a week to 2.

    we had to take it in 6th grade, and we had to make a clock and a few other things, i really can't remember.

    but our teacher was a pedo, and he got caught, and since they didn't find another shop to replace him they stopped making us take woodshop and turned his room into a janitors closet.

    wood beads are like $.75 and most of the rest are $15. any glass, or some type of stone beads are $10 or $15. copper ones are around there too i think...

    beads on the lathe are so easy!!!! lol. i made some out of pine... its a bad idea. pine sucks. but yeah i love my lathe.
    purple heart would look cool. Or any exotic wood.

    It's free picking for any exotic hardwood scraps so I'm working on making this bullroarer out of a really dense block or some sort of red wood I can't recall the name :confused:

    I'm having a huge problem with drilling them though being just perfect I have already split like 3 of my longer ones I've made.

    I use various exotic woods from Africa and places around the world to make beads. As soon as the weather breaks I am totally firing up the lathe again. But with winter here and a shop that's not heater, there's little work that can done at the moment.
