More Cheese Boards

More Cheese BoardsNot too exciting. I make these every year. This is my inventory for our first show in August. I usually make the high side of a couple dozen using strictly scraps and cutoffs and manage to sell out or just about sell out every time. Great use of smalls as you can see from some of the designs. I also mix up the grains. I have them going lengthwise, tall and end grain. Anything to use them up. I just got them waxed up today and installed the hardware, so before I packed them away I wanted to share. The design calls for 5.75×7 minimum size. I usually make mine a minimum of 6×8. Regardless of the size or thickness they are all one price. Hardware is from cheeseslicing.com.

ITS DONE, BOWL WITH ARTWORK. Been along time coming.

ITS DONE, BOWL WITH ARTWORK. Been along time coming.This project has been along time in the thinking stage, Lathe work was quite straight forward. I wanted to do a square bowl, have Pacific Northwest Coast Native Indian Art in the center, and a decoration around the outside resembling abalonie. The theory was simple. I had purchase a book last year as an aid, the art work is basically two form, Ovoids and U shapes, and parts there of. by combining these shapes one can come up with interesting art work. The area where I live is predominately Native as was the school where I taught.
I wanted to do an eagle, want and do is to different things. Try, change and start over. What I did is in not way professional, but I was pleased with my attempt.
The BookThe wood, YELLOW CEDAR, 13 inch square from this slab.Bottom shaped first and then attached to the chuck, this large piece of wood with the four corners created alot of wind. One had to be real cautious to stay clear of itShaped the front and outlined the ring where color was to go.Mask it off and paint BlackApply color. When I was videotaping this project I had the function switch in the wrong position, and missed this step. this is what I wanted to demonstrate the most. Since then a lathed another one and a video will be included in the next project.Design some sort of art work for the center, this is what I did. May not be perfect but this project may be displayed on my wall for my enjoyment.My next project will be of the thunderbird, simuliar shape to the one on the cover of the book, I think that one my be a raven.Thanks for looking, comments are appreciated on this one, good or bad.Come and visit the Ksan Village in Old Hazelton, view, buy art and attend the cultural center. Traditional dances etc.

Drill Press Cabinet

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Drill Press CabinetFinished my Drill Press Cabinet to go with my recently completed Drill Press Table. It provides more than enough storage space for all my bits and accessories. I painted it Powermatic Yellow to match my Lathe Tools / Accessories Cabinet I built awhile ago. Figured I might as well have color coordinated storage cabinets.The cabinet is based on the WoodSmith “3-In-1 Drill Press Upgrade” plan I downloaded from the WoodSmith Online Library. I wanted to use my existing Drill Press mobile stand so I custom built the base. I also made the 3/8” treys routed into the top larger and in the front as opposed to on the sides in the back. I added dividers in the two top drawers to organize small accessories and drills.The overall size of the cabinet is larger than the plans: width is 31”, depth is 29”, height is approximately the same. The shelves on each side in the back are built for specific accessories. That is the one thing I would change if I built another. I would have made the shelves adjustable. Overall a good plan worth getting if you need a Drill Press storage cabinet.Wayne
