Popcorn Bowl

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Popcorn BowlI finally finished this bowl. It was a real ugly piece of wood that I picked up at the saw mill..it might be eucalyptus. I have turned almost all the heart wood away so this is all sap wood.It had a big divot in the side and the guys in the shop threw it outside because they said it stunk so much. My smeller is gone from using solvents all these years so I could not tell. They said it is okay now when finished.I had to make a dam around the sunken area and pour it full of black epoxy to save it.
It is 9” in diameter and 3” high and finished with Danish Oil and buffed as waxed with Carnuba wax.Cheers, Jim

New Router Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


New Router TableWell I built this about six months ago and got it completed enough to use it but it sat sadly without drawer faces until this weekend. I picked up a piece of baltic birch and made some faces and got some handles too. I tend to keep my shop furniture pretty basic in design, I'm not looking to win any beauty contests here.This is the first stand-alone router table I've had, my last one was in the wing of my old Unisaw that I sold to a buddy when I upgraded to a SawStop PCS two years ago. So I've had to make do by putting my router lift in a vise to be able to use it. I don't recommend this to anyone for any thing. It was dicey to say the least.This one is equipped with all Jessem hardware except the router motor which is a Porter Cable 890. I've had the router lift for about five or six years. I bought a Jessem Master Top made of phenolic composite. I like it pretty well. It also has the Jessem Master Fence 2. I really love this thing although it was a bit of a pain to install. I have a review on all of this hardware on LJ. I also picked up the Jessem stock guides. I like them well enough but the tires on them are crap. I'm trying to find an o-ring that will fit.Well, the rest of it is press self explanatory in the pictures, so thanks for looking!Thanks,
wayne

Bread slicer

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Bread slicerI bake bread, it's my Saturday morning thing to do. Not in a bread maker, but flour, water, yeast, muscle and time.Not mentioning any names, but someone has difficulty slicing bread. More likely to cut fat wedges that taper to crumbs…. hard to butter, catches fire in the toaster, and falls apart when marmalade is liberally applied.Solution… a whip around the ol' interweb for designs. Pretty slim, unless I wanna fork out some hard earned dosh! So I decided to make my own, designed to fit whatever comes out of my bread tins. (9×4 bread tin, I think. Zenker, from Germany, best tin I've used yet)All pieces cut on a table saw, straight cuts and tapered cuts (for looks) All glued, no nails and natural edible finish.Using a standard 8” bread knife, it cuts a 5/8” slice of bread nicely. (You could move the block left or right prior to affixing to adjust the thickness. I decided 5/8 was a nice size, fits the toaster and is a good amount if having two slices jammed)Made with leftover laminated pine, 3/4”, and oiled (monthly) with olive oil. Only the purest, cold pressed virgin olive oil. (No pimento prior to pressing!)(I would have liked to have a picture with the bread in it… but today is Friday and the loaves typically don't last past Tuesday, Monday if company comes)Thanks for watching.. bon appetite
