Hey Jocks.I have a Smithy ShopSmith that my grandfather gave me. I finally fired up the lathe function a couple of days ago. I'm hooked. This is my third turning attempt.I've never had a lesson, I just watched some guys on YouTube and decided to go at it. So any advice you want to offer would be greatly appreciated.
I just bought some micromesh sanding pads for pen polishing and wanted to make a storage box for them so they don't get all mixed up during use. I did that for my different sandpaper grits so I though this would work well too. Pull one out…use it ….......and put it right back… so they stay in order.I made the box out of box elder.( I have a big stack right outside the shop door). It holds 9 – 2×2 padsIt is 3 1/8” x 4 1/4” x 2 5/8” high and finished with clear semi gloss enamel.cheers, Jim
