My wife plays bingo at the park in Arizona and keeps her dimes in this little plastic cup. Last year I was making little barrels for something new to do and she said that she wanted a large one to put in lots of winnings (right!!).
Well here it is with a twist lock top and a 1948 silver quarter in the top- the year she was born.
It is made from Maple and Jarrah. The pegs are brass. The L slots were not the easiest things to do with a Dremel. I use a flex shaft but I really needed a right angle dentist drill.
Lizzardhead ( Dave) I finally made a segmented turning as I promised when I visited you last year!!
I did make a mistake in making the segments. I was planning on planing them before laminating but I got ahead of my self and glued them up first. So I had to cut them flat from the resawed (bandsaw) surface which was not perfect. I got some a little thicker and it shows in the heights of the ovals, but my wife is very happy with it so that is all I care about. Next one will be better
I rough turned the barrel shape and established the bands, painted them and then did the final cut to clean up any black paint from the finished surface.
It is 4 1/2” x 7 3/4” high and is finished with clear matte spray and ready to be filled!!!!!................................Jim
