Barn doors

Barn doorsWhen a 12 year old girl says “grampa, do you think you could make barn doors for my closet?”, how can you say anything but yes. I asked her to find me a picture of what she wants them to look like and I would do my best. She was really excited when she came home today and they were done. I have included a picture of what the old doors looked like.

Another cutting board

Furnished content.

Another cutting boardFace grain tumbling block cutting board out of the usual cherry, walnut, and maple. I inlaid a little bunny rabbit in the corner for mom. Its my first one and I was worried about getting it right but honestly it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be and read it was going to be. The only challenging part was glueing.just a pain.To get the saw angle set up correctly I did the most accurate method—-just keep adjusting the angle until the pieces fit right. I have one of those magnetic digital angle block indicators that everybody has and found that it is certainly less than accurate.One of the photos is an example of a 'sausage' that I made for glue up. I could crosscut 3 'pucks' out of each.I found that the larger the piece got during glue up the more difficult it was to fit pieces together. Im sure this is due to the +/- one degree of accuracy adding up or down the larger it got. I sanded the pieces to fit best I could and used tons of glue.The overall size is something near 12”x16”x1.75”My advice to doing one of these is just get your tilt on the tablesaw correct—and LOTS of rubber bands!

Dovetailed tea boxThis is a Mike Penkovich design from FWW 269.I cut the dovetails by hand however. Lots of little lessons along the way in this project!Unfortunately (?) I live with a bunch of tea connoisseurs who only drink loose leaf tea so there won't be any tea bags in this one.
