Just to show that scrap pieces can come to life.
These ear ring holders are made from scrap pine, masonite, plywood flooring, particle board & coasters.
I had too much scrap hanging around the shed and like most woodies wouldn’t throw any away.
Our friend who runs the hospital charity stall will get these for fund raising.
They were a little tricky to make because the 24 index pin system on the lathe would have resulted in holes too close together and 12 were too far apart.
So I needed to design a 16 pin index system.
Inspired by Tony’s blog http://lumberjocks.com/projects/29585 ‘Indexing Wheel for lathe’, I set out to make my own.
Not really a difficult task but a great end result. Thanks Tony
Finished with wipe on poly and a final buff to polish smooth.
