Seems like I have gotten in a bit of a rut with these things…but I guess you go with what you know right??? Co-worker of mine is hanging it up after almost 40 years of service so I knew I needed to do a little something for him. So off to the scrap pile I go…
Had the oak circle left over from a wine rack build so used it as a base. The center column is a oak runner out of a pallet..it had a unique twist to it but I was able to get “most” of it out. The top, chute and mechanism where all out of scrap left over from previous projects as well. If I had been Jim Jakosh, I would have turned the knobs on the lathe…but I ain’t…so did buy them new at the hardware. That dollar and 50 cents saved me quite a bit of grief lol.
Hand wiped some Minwax Provencal stain then sprayed on some clear lacquer after the stain cured.
Got him a jumbo bag of M&M to fill it with…hope it serves him well for many years to come!!!
