Today I brought home a bunch of old boards because I can’t say no to free wood. I had this one board that was rough and supposed to be white oak. After one pass through the jointer, it turned out to be maple and I always wanted some of these finishing cones as Rockler calls them so I cut this board into as many as I could get. I got 22 of the square based ones and as a bonus I got 20 of the triangular ones out of the scrap…. enough for me and 2 of my friends. I had been using scrap boards with nails in them like in photos 4 and they worked okay but these are “cool”. I put them to use right away on a current project!!
Being the size they are, they are pretty light and need some anti skid material on the bottoms-maybe a little 100 grit paper!!
