  1. Just about to wrap up on the first of these. I did several several searches with different phrases and eventually found some quotes that I thought would work. Some of the lids have knobs and some don't so I wrote two versions of each quote for the engraver. These have two coats of spray can shellac on them. They'll get sanded and finish coated in the morning. "Sereni-tea" for a lid with a knob. Liked this quote when I found it. "Sereni-tea" for a lid with no knob. This one I made up. Can't see it because of the knob but th
  2. The bee farm gift shop that sells my honey dippers also sells LOTS of loose leaf tea, I think she told me she stocks over 50 flavors. She wanted to know if I could make lids for those tea jars. They are much smaller version of the dipper lids but with no dipper. The lids these wrap are about 2-1/2" diameter and ideally I would just drill that with a forstner bit. I don't happen to own 2.5" forstner and didn't want to spend 40 bucks on speculation. It occurred to me that I have a 2.5" hole saw and I wondered if I could drill with that and then hollow out the center with a 2-1/8" forstner and sc
  3. Made another lidded pot for my wife. I love making these.
  4. Latest batch of honey dipper lids. I have about 40 in process but I finish them in batches of 20. No engraving on these, customer wants about half of them engraved and half not, need to have 120 of them by the middle of June. Mostly maple, cherry, and walnut, although there are some white oak and hickory ones as well. Steve
  5. Another box making technique: If you are making a box with a lid, the best way to do this is to make a six-sided box (cube) and saw the top off. This results in two things: grain match between lid and base guaranteed alignment, even is the box is slightly out of square and dimensions are the same The problem is when you cut your box off on a table saw, the last cut is prone to pinching as the other three cuts close up a bit. Solution: When gluing up the box temporarily glue up a piece of scrap or two on the inside surface. spanning the cu
  6. Yellow Labs are the pet of choice for my best friend and his wife. I found this figurine at one of the thrift stores and wanted to use it as the handle on a candy bowl I was making for them. It didn't look right so I gave it to them along with the candy bowl and used a porcelain knob for the handle. They were pleased.
  7. Well, I got the panel close to the right size this morning, needed to joint the sawn edges Plane is a Millers Falls No.11 Got all the edges done. Laid out a stop line 1" in from the edges, all the way around. Put the #11 away, got out a #3 plane. I go at a diagonal to the grain, working towards the edge from the line. After a while, I can check for fit.. I have both ends done here. No rebate was done on the back of the panel. Next, came the long edges.. Yep, it has a split going on. Turned out, the panel was a hair too wide, anyway.
  8. Well, I got that troublesome panel out of the clamps this morning, planed the glue lines down smooth.. Plane is an old Stanley #4, Type 13. I also jointed some edges With a Junior jack plane, clamped up the four sides with a clamp And tried the bottom panel into the rebates......was a tad too long, and too wide. Kept "adjusting" the fit, until I had it almost there.. Almost. Look at that corner? Decided to just go ahead and glue the sides up. Took just about all of these style clamps. Might need to be on the lookout for more this se

    Lid opened

    From the album: Box for a Stanley 45

    With the lid opened, you can see how Stanley stored the cutters in this style of a box. The rest of the plane's parts all get stashed in the main compartment. Dividers sit in hand cut dados. I cut the two dados with a backsaw, then a narrow chisel to pop out the waste. Not sure where that racing stripe in the grain came from, but it goes along with the rest of the fancy grain. I chose not to finish the insides...for now.
  10. Got the "lid" out of the clamps today. Ends needed to be squared up. Bandsaw tried, and failed to cut a straight line, again. Sooo Millers Fals No.14 Jack plane to straighten the edges. Panel needed flattened as well...Sooo Gave both the 14 and a No. 11 a crack at it. Part of the panel was a hair thicker than the other. Beltsander on standby.. Dressed the edges a bit.. Low angle block plane. Looks a little better? Got the box, and the lid, set things up in the clamps, needed to plane a bit more... Decided to give the sides a bit of "Tumblehome" where the sides taper towards
