Plant Stand

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Plant StandWas between projects and am always trying to find a way to reduce my inventory of stuff…stuff I've saved for future projects…so lets look around..Found this fresh air vent cover years ago and it's been sitting in it's spot too long…It's cast iron coated with enamel..I've always liked it but, I don't make much furniture. So many things have to be straight and precise…My Son has gotten into potted plants lately and is running out of room, so got me to thinking along those lines…
Then came the design stage…Man I thought of all sorts of fancy things, almost none of witch could I have pulled off…So I went simple, and made a cradle for the top, with finger joints, then made these simple legs…For support I made the second finger joint support…Looked okay…Then I thought about some design for the middle part…Had this beautiful figured chunk I've just had sitting around, basically I liked looking at in just sitting there, knew some day I'd find a use for it…Okay, that looked cool, but…Then the bumpers came to mind…cooler still…Then took some coasters laying around, cut to a diamond shape, attached and there you go…dasign on the run…This thing just kind of got built by looking around and there it was, just what I needed…Well my shop has a few less bits of clutter, making a little headway…Thanks for looking…....

Fordson Super Dexta

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Fordson Super Dexta It has taken me a while to get these two tractors built, but finally here they are.
I have to say what a fantastic model our friend Dutchy has produced for people like me to make. Anybody looking for a challenge should check this model out.
Both models have the engine hoods, fuel tanks and mudguards made from New Zealand Kauri while the engine/transmission on one is Walnut and the other is Cherry. Wheel centres are Jarrah and the rims and other white timber is Holly. Tyres are ebonized Mahogany.
The whole model is coated in Tung oil.
