A absolutely brilliant day here in Brisbane, and its Friday to boot.
After all the family departed I wandered about lost, in my wanderings I spotted a piece of pallet frame begging to be reincarnated into something useful again. After seeing a few LJ balls and feet I thought I might see what I could come up with.
My original concept was to have a tray balls on the sides two of course one on the bottom as a foot and one on the top as shown however I did not have the depth in the tray to do this so it turned into a rounded corner post.
I almost gave the timber and introduction to all my wood working tools
In order of appearance:
Jointer to tidy it up
Shaper to cut a rebate in for the bottom
Drop saw to cut the 45 deg joints
Table saw the cut the base to size
Shaper to run a rebate
Thicknesser to reduce the thickness of the base
Titebond III glue to glue the joints
Framing camps to clamp everything up
Bandsaw to remove the bulk of the timber
Shaper to profile the sides and round over the tops
Disc sander to profile the post sides
Compact belt sander to profile the inside of the posts
Shaper with a slot cutter to reduce the tray sides height
Drill with a flap disc sander to smooth out the divots
Sanding block to tidy up nicks, and there was heaps of them
Sanding Sealer to finish it.
Apart from the shaper the compact belt sander would have done the most work in rough out profiling.
Talk about make some sawdust I was covered in it.
What is is for ? who knows “Straight to the pool room” for the short term.
Saleable, not really its a roughie! just amusing myself at home.
Time to clean up.
