Radius Dish - 28 Feet

Radius Dish - 28 FeetFinished first radius dish. Used the radius template from the last project to make the 28 foot radius guide rails for the router sled. 3/4” plywood rails were capped with 1/8” plywood to provide a smoother running surface for the sled. The attempt to make a dust collector attachment didn't work out well so the project was moved outside where the 3/4” MDF made a real mess. Drawer pull knobs were used to aid in the spinning of the dish. The surface came out much smoother than expected so minimal sanding will be required.The radius dish will be used to build a slight arch into the tops of ukuleles and someday maybe a guitar or two. The 28 foot radius guide rails will be swapped out for a 15 foot pair to make another dish for assembly of arched backs.

Lidded Box

Lidded BoxA store-bought Ambrosia Maple blank started this example of unadulterated nonsense. In photo #4, you may see some kind of inclusion (?). It's not. It seems there was a band of pith running through this piece. Even with store-bought wood, I seem to be pithin' into the wind. The bit that looks for all the world like a coffee stain is actually in the wood. I quit drinking coffee three years ago, this month. (I'm a recovering caffeine addict.) I kinda like it, quite frankly.The lid was created as follows:And, this:I wanted to burn a line into the knob. Does anyone know what I did with my burnishing wires? Can't find them. So I got out a purple Sharpie. I wiped off the excess because I was a-feared the ink would spread while I was applying finish. The finish I applied was YG and HS.Then, I fired up my wood burning pen and, like a moron, signed it. (The pen didn't get hot enough. I actually had to take a torch to it to heat it up enough to make a mark. Or, a moron, if you please.)Thank you. And, I apologize.
