Ugly Table-saw table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Ugly Table-saw tableWhile going through my library of books I stumbled on a book on workshop furniture/jigs/tables.
I have a 1990's Craftsman contractors table-saw. It is a great saw, heavy cast iron table and wings and it cuts dead straight.
The original stampes steel legs were tired and wobbly needing replacement.
The book I found had the plans for this table, so I went for it. I used scraps of wood I had laying around to build. In a couple of cases I side glued to boards in order to get the width I needed.
Thus the name Ugly Table-saw table, nothing fancy not even a paint job. But it is solid!!

May look PLAIN, but end result is BEAUTIFUL  and USEFULA day ago my wife received a call from A Native lady living a short distance away. She had heard I had a lathe and maybe could make one. She didn't know what a lathe was and all the measurement she gave my wife I didn't know what she wanted. I made arrangements t meet her there and find out what she wanted. She was taking a had making class there and needed a mold to weave the cedar bark on to. This is the one they had there , now it makes sense and went home with a picture.That was yesterday morning, went home and laminated a bunch of boards up.Ended up being quite a large piece of wood, my scrape iron lathe was up to the job. It wasn't long before I had a similar shaped mold.I Then texted the lady that she could come and see if it was satisfactory, She was so excited to see it and how it was made. The smile, was ^payment enough. Nice to do things that people appreciate and brings them happinessThis one she brought to show me the end result, it was made by the instructor Isn't it BeautifulHope you found this interesting, not an everyday project. It was a learning experience for me too.
Comments appreciated.

Dogwood Koozie

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Dogwood KoozieHad a good-sized dogwood fall down at the in-laws house two weeks ago. As the responsibility fell to me, I figured that I might take a bit and see if I could learn a thing or two about harvesting some green bowl blanks. I didn't realize how much character it would have. I milled up several bowl blanks for drying and decided the scraps were just too interesting to chuck in the trash. By making small 1×1 sticks, it dried very quickly and I was able to glue up a round form. Everything but the oak disk on the bottom came from the same tree. Epoxy coated on the inside and Howard's Bee's wax finish on the outside.
