Small Projects #13: Covered Pipe

02-09-2020 04:02 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

In an ongoing effort to come up with new pipe ideas (and because the customer specifically asked) here is a pipe with a lid. The pipe started as 5/4 jatoba that I was ripping square profile slabs for pipe blanks. The last piece left about a 3/8” grain matched cutoff. I used a little glue and a piece of newspaper to tie the cutoff back onto the pipe once the bowl and stem were drilled. Once the glue dried I was able to drill and tap a 6-32 hole about 5/8” deep thru both piece...

Drill Press Light

02-07-2020 09:50 AM by George_SA | 4 comments »

Drill Press upgrade I made. When you get older you need additional help. I installed a light using a downlight fitting with a LED bulb in a can which is the perfect fit. The only cost was the LED bulb at about $2 US (R30 in South Africa) as I had all the other stuff... .I made an adjustable arm from some flat bar that I also had lying around. .And while I was busy with lighting I also installed a 20wat LED tube light in my shop. Makes a HUGE difference. I should have done that a LONG...

Small Projects #12: Wonderbread Pipe

02-06-2020 10:07 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Trying to get creative with a new prototype pipe: Started with a chunk of 5/4 jatoba, cut square, 4” long. The 5/8”-7/16” stepped bowl and 3/16” stem were drilled to produce a viable pipe blank. I make these blanks a half dozen at a time, each winds up as a unique ‘art pipe’. This set of blanks was oriented so that the sides are quartersawn, crown up. I drilled the blank randomly with both a 3/16” and 1/8” bit, each about 1/4” deep....

Small Projects #7: Clamp Stand

01-27-2020 09:57 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

A clamp rack was about the first thing I put up. Nine months later I’ve got more clamps and the old rack was overloaded. I built this rack out of 8’ of 1×4, 8’ of 1×2 and a couple of feet of 2×2.Completed project The clamps hang by their handles and the 1×2 acts both as the hanger and end stops for the different clamp lengths. Spring clamps and the smaller clamps are on the sides. The whole thing is on wheels so I can move it around when needed. ...

Pipes #1: Six new pipes

Been selling pipes to the local head shop. Just cut out six blanks from a foot long chunk of jatoba. You can see the lovely variegation: I’ll post more when I shape them. I’m hoping they’ll retail for $20 each. M

Small Projects #4: Short Dog Gate

01-27-2020 12:48 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

The better half grooms our seven (7!) dogs and this often requires keeping one or more dogs in or out of the rooms. Our dogs are Shih Tzu’s and therefore fairly small. Sometimes the goal is to keep the dogs in, sometimes to keep them out. Toward that end the gate is both double sided with metal screen, and it is also double hinged. It swings in either direction like a pair of old western saloon doors. The screens are stapled on with my air stapler and 3/8×1/2 staples. The...

Small Projects #3: Cherry Insulin box

01-27-2020 12:33 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

As I diabetic I need vials of insulin, needles and alcohol pads to be handy at all times especially when traveling. This little cherry tote box is 3” x 3” x 7” out of resawn 1/4” stock. It holds two vials of insulin, eight syringes and a good supply of alcohol pads. I actually made this in 2016 and its held up well. My laser engraver was working then and I engraved the lid to suggest the contents. The sliding lid has what I like to call a ‘perfect’ fi...

Small Projects #1: Vape pen stand

01-26-2020 11:34 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

As an amputee I have intense phantom pain that only a relief vape can stop. If you lay them on their side all the juice pools on the side instead of at the base of the wick. The vape pens themselves have a small, tippy, footprint that easily falls over even if your hand is steady enough to balance it in the first place. I took a length of 2×2 select pine and planed the mill marks off it. Then some drill press work and I have a pen stand. I chamfered all the holes and waxed it with Joh...
