A few months ago, I ran into a project done by Chuck Emery and knowing that my wife like scarfs as well asked her if she would want one.
And this is what I came up with. Mine is made from solid red oak and measures around 16 inches across by 9 inches high.
I took full advantage of owning a CNC Router and used it to layout the center points for the holes – took about 15 minutes of computer work and I had all 21 holes aligned perfectly and square. I then switched to the drill press and forstner bits to drill the actual holes. Used a round-over bit in my router table to finish them nice and smooth.
If anyone is wondering, the majority of the holes are 1 1/2 inches with the four outer holes (Which I would not put there if I had this to do all over again, btw) at 1 1/4 inches.
A few coats of spray lacquer and it was done – a fun little Saturday project. :-)
Thanks for the idea Chuck!
