There have been a lot of very interesting, and sometimes very strange, things which folks have wanted me to make for them. Many have been quite a challenge in figuring out how to make them. I hope to keep adding to this article as new, interesting, and unusual requests come in.
Reeva's 'Ritings with Ruach has pictures of the many things she makes for the synagogue. Click on the picture of Torah covers, bottom right, and then click on the top left picture. Since her mantles go over the scroll upon which the Torah is rolled, the handles of the scroll stick up through the top of the mantle. My wood rings go in those holes, sort of like grommets. In that picture, you can just barely see the edge of the rings sticking up above the top of the mantles. If you are in the market for these kinds of items for personal use or for your synagogue, let me tell you, you are getting top quality work from a really nice lady. And if you need Torah mantle rings, let me know.
I made a replacement roller for the rear of an antique push mower. You know, the kind with no motor and you have to actually push it along the yard to make the cutters spin to cut the grass. I used mahogany since that would be pretty weather resistant. I haven't talked to that customer in quite awhile so don't know how it is working (I think he actually uses a riding lawn mower!).
