Small Projects #35: Bill Press

01-10-2021 10:12 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

SWMBO ask for place to keep monies flat and orderly ahead of bank day. Had a chunk of purpleheart kicking around and made this box. Purpleheart cash keeper The box is 1/4” stock except for the weight which is full 15/16”. The full width stock was sanded to make the finger curve so both sides would be exact copies after resawing. I have about a 5/32” thick center cut with an odd semicircle cutout. The half moon grip was cut from a piece of scrap mahogany using my pla...

First, after milling the two boards, I jointed by hand, using a fence on my No. 7 Stanley which provides a pretty square edge. However...

This is a four foot diameter folding top game table. Table in Up Position The top is red oak, while the base is white ash. The popsicle base is half lapped with bandsawed bun feet. Table in Down Position The hard part was the pivot mechanism without any metal parts. A piece of closet rod acts as the pivot with a dowel acting as the locking pin.

A month or so ago, a local municipal employee – my sanitation engineer, decided to take out his frustration and anger on my garbage can, or maybe – just maybe – it could have been me that was the recipient of his wrath. He ripped the handle off my garbage can. Well attempting to be fair minded about the situation, assuming the can was becoming defective with age, I decided to repair the handle using my woodworking skills. As you can see, I reinforced the edge of the can w...
