Jointer StandJust completed a stand for my recently completed bench top jointer. The entire frame work is constructed using 2×4's, held together by glue and pocket screws with 1/4 launan plywood inserts accented by 1.5 trim.The base dimensions are 38 L x 15 W x 24.5 H while the top measures 38 L x 15 W x 1.5 D.For a finish I painted the lower frame white and all of the trim and drawer pulls expresso brown, then finished all the plywood with a coat of gloss polyurethane.

New Life for an Old Knife

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


New Life for an Old KnifeMy favorite Chef's knife was ready for retirement…..the handle was disintegrating. I nursed it along for a while, and then decided to try to rehabilitate it. I had a piece of African teak...supposed to be water resistant….and a little time. The original handle was held in place by brass rivets, and I couldn't find any of those. Instead, I got brass machine screws and nuts from my local hardware guy, and they worked just fine. After sawing a kerf for the tang with my table saw and rounding over the edges on my router table, I carefully measured the locatiion of the hardware holes, drilled and then set the tang in place with epoxy. I let the brass hardware stand a bit proud and ground it down with my belt sander. The wood is treated to a few doses of mineral oil, and my baby is back in business. Very satisfying project!

Cigar Ash Tray

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Cigar Ash TrayMahogany and maple cigar ash trays. Everything was done on a tablesaw, including the circular shape of the ash tray, as well as the bowl cut. Used a cross cut sled to cut the edges, then made a jig to rotate the piece over the saw blade to get the concave shape on the inside. It was the first time trying this technique and wasn't sure how it would work out, but I couldn't believe how easy it was and how well it worked.I used my drill press to spin the ash tray while I held sandpaper against it to get a smooth and even surface....and if you don't drill holes for the cigar holder, they make nice candy dishes!
