Small Projects #46: Prism Stand

05-07-2021 03:46 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Bought SWMBO a crystal equilateral prism. Its 8” by 1-3/8” on each side. 8” crystal equilateral prism. Unfortunately it didn’t come with a stand or any way of mounting it. We have cats so just sitting it on the window sill will wind up with it broken on the tile floor. Clearly a stand is needed. To get a prism to refract the light you need to hold it at just the right angle. So the stand needs to let the prism rotate to the proper angle for optimum effect. ...

Small Projects #31: Rolling Printer Stand

05-08-2020 05:06 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Most of the “stands” I create are simple 2X4 & ply creations and this is no exception. However this is one is for our home office and needed to be a little less Spartan. Its the exact height of the computer table – and rolls! The printer is an hp all-in-one with scanner and such. Because of this it needs a minimum 18” height when the scan lid is open. I mad the shelf 20” to give some clearance. The raw 2×4s were planed down to 1-1/4 to remove th...

Small Projects #20: Jigsaw Stand

03-23-2020 11:51 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Bought a jigsaw to cut out for a dog bowl five or six years ago. Have only used it once since (interestingly enough to cut another dog bowl). Jigsaws have that stupid blade sticking out and I know for a fact if I remove the blade the next time I go to use it (in another five or six years) I’ll never find the blade. I know I have a blade assortment that I bought when I bought the jigsaw but I have no clue where they might be. The blade means you can’t stand the jig saw up and...

Small Projects #17: Glass Pipe Accessory Stand

02-27-2020 12:26 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

My customer sells a variety of pipes and smoking accessories and needs various display stands for the oddly shaped bits and bobs.It’s a ‘whatzis’ stand This is the second stand I made for them. The first was similar but had three rows of 1/2” posts whereas this version has two rows of 3/4” posts. I dropped off the first one yesterday and my customer was so pleased they immediately ordered the 2nd one. The beveled edge detail is common to both stands as is t...

Small Projects #8: Jatoba and Marble Plant Stand

01-27-2020 10:21 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This is a project I made about 20 years ago. It’s out of jatoba with a “Tito’s Green” marble floor tile inset into the top. The wood is finished with Johnson’s paste floor wax and the jatoba has darkened to the lovely burgundy color you see here:Jatoba Plant Stand Marble is porous and watering spills will be absorbed and evaporate. Being a floor tile instead of a wall tile it is thicker and heavier than a wall tile. The unit was quite heavy as I just planed...

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...

Shop Implements/Jigs et al #1: Easy, Cheap Mobile Base for the Small Shop (BONUS: Lifting Your Machine on Them Simply)

01-10-2019 10:45 PM by NeophyteGrant | 3 comments »

This is a slightly personalized version of a base conceived of by Don K and Brad Nailor: http://lumberjocks.com/Brad_Nailor/blog/11845 Like many, I do not have a large shop. I’m a hobbyist and use the garage. Up until a month or so ago I had used a variety of Shop Fox and HTC mobile bases on all my stationary machines but had found that the 2 fixed and 2 swivel caster design, in my case, was a hindrance rather than an asset. With this configuration, moving machines is a game of paral...

Easiest Anvil Stand

03-15-2017 10:29 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I needed a stand for my anvil. I had just taken apart my workbench with all the 2×6 material and decided to use that. After cutting all the pieces to 23” I screwed 6 sets side by side using pocket holes. After I had all those done I screwed them all together in a laminate design. I flipped these back and forth to add strength so the pocket holes were not all on one side. Check out the video and subscribe.
