Beads of Courage Barrel

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Beads of Courage BarrelI recently joined the Southern Arizona Wood Turners Association (http://sazwa.org/ ) and they are the group that started making lidded bowls/barrels for kids with serious illnesses like cancer to store the beads of courage they receive when ever they have to undergo a procedure in the hospital. I volunteered to make one for the Feb meeting.This one is made from 6 staves of mesquite and is 6 1/2” in diameter and 8 1/2” overall high. It is finished with shellac sealer.I first turned it round, mounted the steady rest around it and then turned the inside and made the bottom to fit and glued it on. Then the top holding plate was parted off and the top was turned by holding it by the bottom. The lid was then turned to fit the top.Cheers, Jim

Cheese BoardA new shape of cheese board for me, Maple. I didn't think I was going to like it but I do now that it's done. Three similar to what I've done before, Ash and Mahogany. A rolling pin a little longer and thinner than the last, (looks better to me) Mahogany and Maple.

Cowboy Hat Holders

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Cowboy Hat HoldersI read somewhere that this is the best way to hang a cowboy hat. Decreases damage to the rim. Made a couple of single hat holders for my daughters and a double with cross lap frames for their 4H riding instructors. I bought a few cheap pairs of spurs and thought they would bake a nice hanger for belts or coats. The double is made from fir and the singles are from maple. Finished with water based poly.
