I made this cutting board for a family friend. It is my first attempt at breadboard ends. I made it out of scraps of hard maple, soft maple, cherry, walnut, zebra wood, and oak dowels. I cut the tenons and grooves for the ends on the router table, grooved a slot for your fingers on each end to make picking it up or flipping it to the clean side easier. Then finished it with 4 coats of butcher block oil. Hopefully it holds up well.
I decided to make this nice stand to mount my bench grinder and my Work Sharp system.Awhile back my son gave me this small table that was to be thrown away at his work, For about I year I had junk piled on it. Since I was in the process of making my shop a better functioning shop I came up with this idea.From the floor up I used a piece of 3/4” plywood with casters on it. On top of it I built this small cabinet with drawers. Placing frame of table over to I attached to lower base. On top I made this 20” round table to mount my tools on. In the center of the top I used a 1/2” carriage bolt to allow top can rotate 360 degrees.To use either tool, I simply rotate tools around to be in front of me. The lower drawers with allow me to store tools and all my sharpening products.
I 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.
