Some more crosses

Some more crossesI haven't had much time in the shop and so these are a few crosses that I've been able to complete over the last month or so. I have done so many frames that I have many, many corners and decided to try to put them together into a project. Those two crosses are corner pieces arranged/glued on aspen (I think) and walnut. I then cut them out at the bandsaw.

The other simple design is walnut on maple (at least I think it is maple). All finished with Odie's Oil.

Bowling League Receipt

Bowling League ReceiptI finally got time to work on the glue up blank that George (Woodmaster1) sent me. He had sent a great bowl and pen, and also a smaller glued up blank that matches the bowl he finished. (4th picture)I had never turned a segmented bowl before, it acted differently. Maybe because all the faces were side grain, or the glue acted as a lubricant. It was very easy and faster than usual to sand to a polish.Thanks George!

Planter Renovation

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Planter RenovationFriends from the village asked me if I could repair a couple of planters that were falling to bits. As usual, I forgot to take a 'before' picture, so can only show the finished result. The second picture, however, includes the 5-inch pieces cut off the bottom of each leg and does show how rotten they were. The bottom rails were in a similar state, with one missing completely and the side boards hanging loose. I initially thought that I could just move the rails up after shortening the legs to remove the rotten areas, but of course as the shape is tapered, the rails were then too short, so I had to make all eight new ones. Again because of the taper, I could just about prise the side boards out of the top of the frame without dismantling completely, but it was a struggle to get them free for shortening on my bandsaw.
I did intend to use dominoes to fix the new rails, but the Domino tool was too large to go in the gap between the legs, so I resorted to pocket hole screws. Even then I had to shorten the star-shaped driver bit to get that in. After repainting with garden paint – three coats on the new wood – I added some nail-on nylon feet to the bottoms of the legs to reduce water take-up, so perhaps it might take longer for the repaired planters to need renovation again.
