  • 2 Planters

    This mug is actually a planter there are a series of 3 holes at the bottom. The wood used was Mahogany and sealed with spar urethane.

    This other one is a planter holder and was an experiment. The woods used are pin and poplar. I used Minwax PolyShades Antique Walnut - Satin polyurethane to stain and seal the holder.

        The second one is really easy it just looks hard. For that one I used a 3/4" thick 6"x6" board then cut a bunch of 5/16" thick 3/8" wide strips and then glued one strip every 3/8" on one side of the board. I cut the rings with the strips down on the table. when I glued them together I rotated about 1/4 of a full rotation for each ring. Sanding and glue control are difficult and time consuming but I kind of like the result.

          I'm going to have to read the instructions a bit slower and after I have a cup of coffee in the morning..... but they both look like real sweeeet projects. Kudos!

            That certainly will be a challenge, Since the wood appears to be well preserved, it will interesting to identify the wood - cedar or locust ???

            They say great minds think alike. I wanted to order the ones you sent me to try. I’ll be placing an order over the week-end for the #3 double skip and others. Bruce’s free tickets to Dover this week-end for the races may just cost him for leaving me here by myself for 3 days! And I got them in 2...
