Last year my aunt brought me a page out of a magazine with the plans (or part of them anyway) for this plate holder.
This morning, I finally got around to making it.
The base and clamp are aromatic cedar
The dowel is just a dowel.
The plate is the commemorative plate for my old school. I went there from Grade 1 – 8 (1964-1970)
The background for the pix is the sofa that came from my great-grandfather’s house. It was probably purchased by my great-uncles. Don’t know how old it is but it’s cool.
The hard part was putting in the angled slot in the base. Maybe next time I’d try putting it in the wood first and then cutting out the shape. Should be much easier that way to set the mitre saw on an angle and just plunge it to the required depth without fear of cutting through the edges.
