  • 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!

            Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

            Wood supply

            We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

            What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
