Small Projects #32: Lexan Lidded Smaller Drawer

10-21-2020 07:17 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Smaller drawers are handy, but they can be dust collectors. Here in Florida there is no end of small critters that would find a dark seldom used drawer as a good home. I have several cases holding several drawers the get carried around – not always right side up. To solve all of the above I’ve built a set of lidded drawers. I built two each of three sizes and added internal lexan dividers on the smallest for added storage variants. The drawer is essentially sealed with...

Forge table #3: Cleaning up the top

10-06-2020 05:04 PM by Dave Polaschek | 14 comments »

This morning I decided it was time to get the top of the table a little closer to done. I started by sawing off the excess on the ends. Next up was scrubbing across the grain to even out the slight undulations where I had clamped the board together. Forgot to take a photo. Oops! Once that was done, I started drilling the holes for the legs. I want them to go through the center of the battens, about two inches from the edge of the table. They’re going to be straight vertical, with so...

Journey into Woodturning #19: Harry Potter Back-scratcher!

10-06-2020 02:01 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

I channeled my inner Harry Potter to make a wand backscratcher. I picked up a back-scratcher project kit and some red oak from home depot. Maxed out the length on the lathe and turned a stick. Well a stick with a handle, that also had a pommel and threaded insert. It really does look like a magical wand, without the brass hand attached. This was an easy turn on the lathe and a fun project, while still being practical. I’ve been wanting a backscratcher for so long. Never have one when I nee...

Spinnekop (windmill) #4: De koker

09-27-2020 11:18 AM by JobK | 3 comments »

This part of the mill is called “koker” and can be translated as tube. It is part of the bottom part of the windmill and allows the main drive shaft to go from the upper part to the lower part. It also allows the top of the windmill to be turned to face the wind with its wings faced in that direction. It is made of 8 pieces and is held together by the “boven tafelment” and some iron bands. On the drawing are some comments noting that the tube has been replaced at the wrong dimen...
