Table top is 25” x 23” with a 4 inch wide exterior frame is black walnut, insert panel is padauk, walnut and maple. Built insert panel pre-covid and shop shut down prior to completing it. Had cut walnut frame pieces last year and they sat in a warm Arizona House most of spring and all summ...

Tea Bag Holder Cabinet #11: Finishing touches

03-19-2021 03:30 AM by sras | 9 comments »

Since this cabinet is so small I ended up buying some artists brushes for oil paints. They really helped with the application of the oil based polyurethane. I built up several coats to get a fairly glossy finish. I decided to finish the ebony strips separately to prevent any finish build up along them. I also took care to keep the grooves free of finish. I let the parts set for a week to give the finish time to harden. Then it was only a matter of gluing the strips in ...

Tea Bag Holder Cabinet #9: The base is created

03-01-2021 04:08 AM by sras | 15 comments »

Several distractions over the past several days meant the base took a while to complete. First was to create a template for a document slot. A little creative clamping. And we have a template. Set the router table up with a guide bearing bit and double stick tape the template in place. And we have a pocket roughed out. All that was left was to square up the corners. The rest of the base work involves several settings on the router table. Last time I tried...

Striped rolling pin #3: The turn...

02-24-2021 04:09 AM by BillGo | 1 comment »

Much better…. As you can see after the cleanup, the pieces are much more consistent: The pieces were .75” square. Notice that this means that when the blank is turned, the corners of the dark pieces will be taken off first, and the width of the dark pieces will be wider than the white. But as the diameter shrinks, the width of the dark pieces will get narrower, and the white pieces will remain constant. The stripes were equal width at 1.9”. You can also see th...

Striped rolling pin #2: New blank

02-23-2021 03:53 AM by BillGo | 0 comments »

Starting over, gluing up a new blank. This time being more careful to plan ahead so I can plane a little bit after gluing up and still have boards that are perfectly square. Also taking more care to make sure they are lined up. While I was at it, I made the boards a little smaller to shrink the overall diameter of the finished rolling pin. I also made the center piece walnut this time to have a dark center and make the ends more interesting.

Striped rolling pin #1: Striped Roling Pin

02-22-2021 04:17 AM by BillGo | 0 comments »

I have been experimenting with making a striped rolling pin. I am bummed that I did not take a picture of the blank I started with. It was a piece of maple the full width in the middle, with three square pieces, walnut, maple, walnut on top and bottom. 21” long, and if you look at the end, it looks like a white ”+” with dark corners. The rolling pins I was going for, were 1.75” diameter, with tapered ends. I was trying to make the black and white stripes of equal si...

Tea Bag Holder Cabinet #6: Box Assembly

02-12-2021 02:30 AM by sras | 4 comments »

This entry covers the last 3 days. I got the door assembly out of the clamps. So far so good. And here is where all the time went. It took 2 days to get the finish right on the interior surfaces. I masked off any surface that would accept glue later. Time for a side project while the finish dries. My hinges came with #2 sized screws. If I open up the countersinks I can use a #4 which has a lot more holding power. I used my sacrificial block from cutting the hinge notc...

Tea Bag Holder Cabinet #5: Door construction

02-09-2021 03:40 AM by sras | 2 comments »

The door blank needs to be split into 2 parts – a door top and a door front. I’m going to join them with a mitered rabbet joint. I cut the step for the rabbet on the router table. The rest of the cuts were done on the table saw. I made sure I had the blade set at an exact 45 degrees. It took a bit few passes to sneak up on the fit. I was so involved I forgot to take any set up pictures. Here is the result. I then glued the mitered rabbet as the first as...

Tea Bag Holder Cabinet #4: Final details on the main cabinet

02-07-2021 11:39 PM by sras | 10 comments »

I need to put a cutout on each of the 3 shelves and floor. For this I need a template. Make the cutout on a template. Then locate a shelf on the template blank. Glue a cleat on each side. Draw the cutout on each piece. The next 3 steps are shown here. Rough cut on bandsaw (middle), route with template (bottom), and sand profile (top). Here’s a piece ready for routing The template provides extra support while rounding the first edge. The s...
