  • 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.

                      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.

                      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.

                      He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                      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...
