Journey into Woodturning #50: Cherry Bowl

03-30-2021 02:32 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

I forgot I recently turned cherry, so the video this week was done a little differently. A friend asked if I could make them a salad bowl. I grabbed a piece of wood I thought would make a great size salad bowl. I think it’s a little small for a large bowl, but they seemed to think it was a great size. I used butchers block oil for the first time and I kind of like it. It doesn’t stain the wood and looks great. Althought it might be that the cherry is so nice, it wouldn’...

Small Projects #41: Crosses -- More Easter Gifts -- Rosewood, Zebrawood, Cherry, Yellowheart, Purpleheart

03-08-2021 03:09 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This was an Easter gift for a nice little old Italian widow I know. It came out so well I had to make another one for SWMBO. Then another for a neighbor and another … six so far! Rosewood and zebrawood The “standard” proportions are that the cross bar is half the height, centered 1/4 of the way down. The material was ripped to 1-1/2”, resawn on the TS to 3/4” thick and then cut to length, 15” and 7-1/2”. This used over 22-3/4” of a 24&#...

Cherry dresser and night tables to match #8: Installing the drawers

02-26-2021 05:10 PM by Antti | 0 comments »

I finally had the chance to start working on the drawer fronts. The heights are97, 97, 180, 180 and 280 millimeters. If you look closely in the end of this post, you notice that these are quite close to the original plan. I only had to add 1 mm to the two top ones to compensate for the extra height I managed to build into the frame. The lowest i.e. the widest had to be constructed from 3 boards. All in all I was barely able to get these from the boards I had bought. I swear I will buy extra 2...

Old Projects #16: Self Centering Bits Storage Box

01-30-2021 11:41 PM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Got a set of self centering pilot drills in the other day. They were a good value but just came in a blister pack. Rather than let them rattle around and get damaged / dull / lost I decided to make a little 1-1/2” x 2-3/4” x 5” box to store them in. In my shop about all we discard is sawdust! I gathered some walnut and cherry scraps and came up with this: Nothing like a quick little project to give me a sawdust fix for the day. - – - – - – - – - - ...

Old Projects #15: Bathroom Medicine Chest

01-26-2021 11:57 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

One of life’s little peeves is fumbling in the dark for an aspirin or other item at night in the bathroom. This medicine chest is split into his & hers sections, each with an automatic LED lamp and clear shelves to keep you from brushing with Brylcreme! His & Hers lighted medicine chest. 1/2” × 3-1/2” S4S oak was used from the local (over priced) big box store. Each door was made with a captive metal insert. I chose this pattern & color, but many variations are a...

Small Projects #36: Caliper Storage box

01-26-2021 12:23 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Have a nice 8” digital caliper for 8 or so years. After much use the plastic clamshell case’s hinge started to fail and the case was cracking after a drop or two (oopsies). With nothing much else on my plate while waiting on router toys, I built this little replacement case for my caliper. Caliper Storage box Lid lock requires thin kerf blade for .093” lexan. The box is 12-1/2” x 4-3/8” x 1-1/2” with a 1” interior clearance. I used a ni...

TV Stand #1: Frame and panel work

12-14-2020 05:02 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 1 comment »

I need to make a TV stand that also houses your usual TV related gear. I started with a simple layout: There are no shelves as I am going to put glass shelves in. I had a pile of locally sawed cherry that I have been sitting on for years. It was not enough for a kitchen or a dinning set, but it would work for this. I love local wood. Full of character, flaws that you can build on and a natural sense to the wood. It cleaned up nice: I milled out rail and stile blank...
