  • Coat rack order completed!

    Thought I'd post a pic of the coat rack my new neighbors ordered the other day. Cut out of 3/8 ash, finished with Danish oil and 3 coats MinWax Poly. Used FD Polar #5 blades, stack cut 2 and had a 1/8 plywood backer. About 32" wide, almost 10" tall at the widest. Cherry stained poplar for the "back" board, cherry coat pegs (turned on my lathe).

    Hope you enjoy - critisisms welcome too

      Nice work Bear,

      It's got that "Rustic" feeling to it while being elegant.

      Regards,

        Good looking, Bear!
        I'd say that you have the "rustic elegant" look nailed. No criticisms here, except that I didn't get one!

                Thanks!

                You folks are good for the EGO! Thank you all for the kind words. I hope you will tell me when you see something that you don't like or think would look better because that is how we will all get better at this wonderful hobby of ours.

                I can easily take care of your "problem" Sandy, all it takes is an order....

                Dale - You crack me up! If you include prep, sanding, taping, mounting the pattern, cutting, removing the tape/pattern, sanding, oiling, sanding, and 3 coats of varnish, I've got 1 1/2 hours into it. Remember, I cut two and made 2. Total materials cost is 2 FD Polar #5 blades, a few feet of tape, a snoodge of spray glue, a bit of oil, a little varnish, a sheet of sandpaper, and the wood. Bottom line is $35 each ($30/hr shop time + (materials X 2) Both sold before they were done. If I can find some similar wood, I'll up my price!

                Thanks again!

                    Sorry Evie, just realized I didn't answer your question.

                    No, the knot is CA glued in place. I use cabinet clips to hang these. Locks them in nice and tight. Thanks for the kind words.

                      by tgiro01
                      One issue I found with the insert that comes with the saw was the areas they smoothed for the kickback pawls. If the insert is leveled correctly, those areas are sitting about 1/32-inch below the table. I had a problem with some small pieces getting caught and jamming because of that. Sawstop's recommendation...

                      That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

                      I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

                      Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
