Round Tissue Box.This is my version of a round tissue box. Tony (Woodshaver) and I were having fun with this one. I tease him time to time to go out and get a lathe and he said if I show him how to make one on a lathe he would consider it.woodshaver Tony Chome | projects | blog6917 posts in 3883 days#27 posted 10-31-2019 08:57 AM
FlagOh NO Dave! Code of Ethics against me! LOL!
Sometimes I get it right but most times it's be accident! Although it's not April I couldn't help posting that cute little red lathe but just for a joke as you can see!I'm still lathe-less except for truing my drill press into one occasionally! Can you show me how to turn out a tissue box on a lathe? Now that would be very cool and I may bite the bullet and buy one! You made me feel lonely when you said I'm on my own you know. so show me a lathe tissue box and make me smile! LOL!Long story short, here you have it. It's made from Lyptus, Tigerwood, and Padauk. 10 segments to a ring, 10 rings. The top is a piece of red box elder which matched the padauk on the rings and the base is made from a chunk of walnut. 8'' tall, the base is 5'' dia, and the top is 3 1/2''. Finished with lacquer.
So should we wait for him to get a lathe? NOT!!!!
We had the round tissue boxes here which made the project easy but you can also use a stack of regular tissues and fold then twice to make them work. googleWell here it is Tony. Thanks for the inspiration. Nancy loves it.

Mission Clock

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Mission Clock I purchased the plan from Klockit as well as the clock mechanism. I made the clock from white oak and put a natural oil finish on it. The plans they provide are drawings with some dimensions listed as typical. I modified the door and used a different router bit for the top and bottom.I had expected the plans to be better. I spent a fair amount of time trying to understand the drawings and make some sense of them. I had called their support line and was told someone would call me back. They offered me a refund, but I decided to give it a try.

Walnut Computer desk

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Walnut Computer deskHi Gang,
This was a project that was planned years ago, started in June, sat party finished for weeks and then was completed in early September. I had two book matched slabs waiting/wanting to be used for something exciting in our house and decided to replace my old computer desk. Before gluing up the top I ripped the other crotch section off so I would have a flat back to set against the pine wall of our loft. My original plan was to use this crotch section as a backsplash giving the desk a “double waterfall “effect – coming down from the back and then going down to the left – but that plan changed quickly after I dry assembled it. (It looked too busy and would have also been hidden by the monitors which now will be mounted against the wall, eliminating the typical monitor stands). I then decided to use the crotch section as a sub-imposed shelf to support the computer and printer below the desk top.
The miter joint uses 5 floating tenons and I affixed two metal brackets on the underside as reinforcements. I glued the miter cut-off in place to (almost) hide the metal brackets. I cut the other leg to leave two tenons, 1×1&1/2 inches, and then carefully transferred their location to the top and chiseled the mating mortises to make a very snug mechanical joint. I used Tightbond 3 for all gluing and filled the cracks and gaps in the top with epoxy.
The top is 1&1/2 inch thick and its widest point is 31 inches. The other leg is about 18 inches wide and was cut from a 2&3/4 in slab and flattened with a planes.Thanks for looking and as usual, please, ignore the Woodduck. . Marc
