Black Locust Dump Stump find.

Black Locust Dump Stump find.Found some Black Locust logs at the dump. Looked like discarded firewood, free, so I put on the lathe. Wow, it was very hard and knarley, but after stabilizing the knots with ca glue, and some internal bark, finished it with beeswax and mineral oil. Well worth it.

My Grandpa's Suit Rack

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


My Grandpa's Suit RackThis is a suit rack that my Grandpa made for my dad about 30 years ago. I am posting it for him because he has been such an important part of my woodworking journey. We enjoyed a lot of shop time together this summer and now that he is back here after spending some time at home in Iowa, I took these photos this morning and told him I was going to post it and he is so excited.He got the measurements for the suit rack out of a Penney's catalogue (remember Penney's catalogue??) and designed it from there. It is made from oak with dowel construction. As you can see he routed the edges and a tray for cufflinks or whatever on the little top shelf. It is still in pristine condition (dad doesn't wear suits anymore – haha) It stands about 4 feet.It is a treasure because Grandpa made it. Thanks for taking a look and Grandpa will sure love to hear your comments and critiques! :)
