Antler plaque

Antler plaqueI never really liked the cookie cutter, generic plaques often used by taxidermists. I recently made a new plaque for this one from 1994. It is “rustic” cherry. A little rough around the edges but definitely one of a kind.

First try at a grain trailer!  Finished up the grain trailer. Took a little longer than I had hoped but it was a fun build. My 85 year old father in law stopped by as I was adding the rear and front ladders and the tarp crank. He was impressed at the details. Coming from him, makes me feel great as his wood working skills are masterful.

Lathe accessories box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Lathe accessories boxI bought a lathe last Friday. It's the Harbor Freight 12×33 inch model, and it came with the usual bits; there's the face plate, the tool rest extension, and a handful of wrenches the you need to get the thing put together. Plus I'll be getting another chuck for it. So I had those parts laying around.Rather than losing them, I built a small pine box to keep them all together. As you can see in the first picture, it fits nicely on the lathe stand, and once it finishes drying, I'll add a pair of cleats to the bottom so it'll be nice and secure there.The box is dovetailed, with a raised panel bottom that rides in grooves in the sides of the box. The lid is piston-fit and just butt-jointed. Most of the pine is 3/4 stuff, but the edges of the lid were resawed to a little under 3/8”.Finish is two coats of shellac. I may apply a coat of soft wax yet, but more likely I'll just leave the shellac.Total time? About 3 hours, not counting waiting for the glue to dry.Thanks for looking!
