Just a couple of projects done for the wife.
First is a simple paper towel holder out of hickory and done on the lathe. Nothing fancy, but it turned out nice with the beautiful grain pattern.
Second is a magnetic knife holder made from walnut. I used a tool holding magnet from harbor freight. I hollowed out a mortise using my drill press and chisels. Then I used a router plane to get the depth to within about 1/16th” from breaking through the other side so there would be very little wood interfering with the magnet. Works quite well and holds the knives firmly.
Thanks for looking!
