  • Log Cabin

    I made this log cabin incense burner with some dowels and poplar scrap I had laying around, I drilled a hole thru the chimney for the smoke to pass thru and the roof lifts off to place the incense in. I have to say it works pretty good.

    That really is my sort of project . I bet it would be popular at craft fairs and suchlike too.

      Hey Bill,

      That is a nifty idea, how big is it?
      And I hope you don't mind if some of us use or adapt it?

      That poplar looks curly, are my eyes deceiving me?

      And lastly, what did you use under the incense so the house wouldn't burn down , metal or tile?

      Regards,

          It measures 4 x 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 tall, Marcel the only thing I can tell you regarding the curly is I didn't use a pre stain conditioner on it and I think on the edges I could of sanded it alot smoother, for the incense holder I used a metal beer bottle cap with a drop of CA glue to hold it in place.
          Pllease feel free to use this idea any way you like.........

          Thanks all for the compliments.

            Bill, that's the cutest little portrait I've ever seen you show. Where did you get the pattern?

            Seriously, that is a neat little incense burner. Did you see the idea in a magazine or were the wheels in your head turning that fast?

            I agree with Gill. That would probably be a good seller, mainly because it's unique. People are impressed by things they haven't seen before. Too many products at craft shows are the same old crap all the time. People want and demand something new, and this is definitely it. They would also buy it because it was created by an artist.

              Evie,
              I once had some incense that smelled just like pine when it burned.
              If we could find some more of it, I bet no woodworker could resist it - pine smells soooo good!

              Bill,
              A beer cap!! What a good use for them! And what a good idea!
              Now you need to scroll a window with some curtains, and a cupola...
              Nah!! Just kidding. You done great.

                  It's adorable and would look great on my mantel in the living room.

                  May need to make one of these. Although, I'm not much for incense it would still look great just as is up there with all our assorted moose.

                  May have to carve a couple of simple trees to go along with the woodland theme. . .oh, geez something else to add to my to do list.

                  At least it keeps me off the streets and out of trouble.

                      How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                      The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                      I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                      Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                      If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                      Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
