    Default What am I making?

    Just like the title says, comment below if you have an idea of exactly what I am making?

    Some might know this but, at one time I actually operated a custom woodworking shop. Over the years (and a move later), I simply never got around to doing a ton of woodworking. Primarily because my barn roof leaks (trying to rectify it one free screw at a time.. thanks to Steve) and I have to move my tools all over just to get at them.

    This project has been eating at me for awhile. I'm to the point now where I don't have a choice. I have to get it started... and finished. The joys of woodworking are overshadowed by the project I am working on.

    The boards utilized were all milled with my chainsaw last winter (I have since added a bandsaw mill). All lumber came off from my property. These are all 5/4 rough stock red oak.

    Now, to run the one reference edge through the jointer so I can get 90 degree cuts on my chop saw.

    With a 90 degree reference face and the boards cut to lenth, I was able to rip them down on my table saw to 1/4 over the finished size.

    Back to the jointer to get them to the final dimension and have perfect sides.

    After sanding with 60, 100, and 150 grit, I am now ready for assembly. I will finish sand to 400 grit after assembly.

    More to follow tomorrow. Until then, it will be interesting to see how close people are with their guesses.

    Do you by chance have a Lathe?

    What about you Steve you have one?

    You guys are not even close.

    It measures 24 long, 16 wide, and 12 inches deep.

    I sold my lathe last year. The space saving measure was quickly negated by someone (not me) deciding that I could store more crap for them.

    More pictures tomorrow. As said, I'm in a time crunch here. Otherwise I would have glued up the planks and used my dovetail jig.

    Don: once you figure out what it is, you won't want it. Trust me.

    Remember in the first few paragraphs I said that the joys of woodworking are overshadowed by the project.

    Enough hints for now

    Yes I do, a 1951 Oliver lathe I restored in 2006-7
    Made in Grand Rapids Mi.
    Looks almost identical to this one except I added casters, chrome pinstripes and flames

    I’ll sell it to you, I don’t use it anymore and it’s been used very little since I restored it.

    Even comes with a fancy bowl turning chuck.
