A WOODTURNED RECIPE HOLDER EASEL. (CS1 Kitchen Challenge)

09-27-2010 01:42 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

This is not a brand new project. I submitted it, because of a request by MsDebbieP for the CS1 Kitchen challenge. I was out in the shop one day, & thought to myself, what can I make? I said, how about making a recipe holder easel for Barb’s kitchen. So I dug out some pieces of wood from my scrap bin, & proceeded with the project. I didn’t have a plan, but I knew what I wanted it to look like, so the first thing I made was the main spindle post. Then I ma...

Barb's Calico Bean Recipe, with Maple Background.

06-18-2010 03:06 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 24 comments »

This isn’t really woodworking, but there’s some wood involved in the presentation. The other day, a friend of ours requested this recipe of Barb’s Calico Beans. She always made these when we went on a picnic, or potluck dinner. We were really impressed by the request, because the person who asked about the recipe hadn’t been in touch with it for about 20 years, but he still remembered how good it tasted. I added my touch to this , by furnishing the maple...

I thought it was about time I posted the completed project. With help from my Son we grunted the machines up in place. They look good, & work real well. The pedestals are good, & solid. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It’s sure nice not to have to bend over to load, & unload now. I edited this on 02/05/2011 I changed to stationary non-swivel casters, but after that I had the problem of them slipping side to side on the sm...
