Project Information

Wish I had a good lathe ( on the list )
Anyway part of my job is to clean up
new home construction sites. It sounds
like a crappy job and it is but there are
many benefits. I haven't bought a electrical
box, plumbing fittings, etc. Anything a trade
can leave behind. I've been saving these
newel posts, ( had 5 ) and finally figured out
what to do with them.
Coat tree sounded good, Make some
legs, Buy some hooks, Easy Enough !

I bought lathe off CL for $20 (no motor)
just cause it was cheap and I thought it
was pretty neat. Figured I'd have a little

Good find on Craigslist nice little lathe .I love craigslist there are lots of good tools for sell cheap I got a porter cable table saw for 40 bucks it had a semi new Freud blade in it and that blade is 35 bucks new. Score!!
The coat rack looks great and I like the reuse of stuff.
