Pen #19

Pen #19Not to belabor the point, but, this is the fifth of the six pens I was asked by RBS and TKSM.The wood is, I believe, Bubinga. The model is what they call “Cuban.” It's a Cigar Pen. “Cuban Cigar?” I don't know. The Cigar pens are where I started these pen-making shenanigans. #S 1 & 2 are Cigar Pens. I have the barrels prepared for #20. After dinner, perhaps.Inconcievably, that's all I have to say.Thank you. And, I apologize.

Failing the Rorschach Test

Failing the Rorschach TestA bit of a departure from my ordinary furniture making. I've had the idea for this project kicking around in my head for a couple of years now, finally had a bit of a break between projects to put it together. Was an old barn beam, not sure the species of wood. Sanded to 320 and then 4 coats of a homemade concoction of tung oil/blo/poly.

Folding Planer Cart

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Folding Planer CartJust finished up with a new planer cart. I was getting very sick of picking this thing up and putting it away with it being so heavy. I made a final resting place for it. I took the design from a FWW article. No plans but some extremely helpful drawings. MrFid's design here on LumberJocks was a great reference as well.It is all made from 3/4 inch plywood and some melamine for the in feed and out feed supports. The supports are then edged with some maple that I had on hand. I am able to raise and lower the supports with a carriage bolt mounted in the swinging arms to raise and lower them. The front of the in feed and out feed supports are on hinges that are mounted to a moveable block giving me the ability to adjust right up to the start of the planer bed. The cabinet is placed on casters to make it completely moveable.So far I love this thing. It gives me the in feed and out feed support I wanted without taking up a huge foot print in my shop. My plan is to eventually make the bottom into a space to collect the chips coming out the back. I have gotten some good cuts with no to very minimal snipe with this. It has been great!I think this may be my last shop project for awhile. I feel like I have my garage set up the way I like it…. until I see something cool made on LumberJocks! I am ready to get working with more hardwood now rather than plywood. Thanks for looking!
