I was out of town last week, working. Don’t ya just hate it when work gets in the way of spending time in your shop….
Anyway, my project(s) for this week. Some wooden spinners. The spinners were cut out of some scrap cedar fence boards I had in my garage. I started with cut pieces that were 9” long and 1/4” thick. I simply left the pieces the width of the cedar fence board. I did not plain or sand as I wanted the rough look. The hardware is 1/8” threaded metal rod, 1/8” nuts, 1/8” coupling nuts and 1/8” eye bolts. I wanted to hide as much of the hardware as I could so I also added some end caps to cover the hardware. The end caps are cedar drilled with a forstner bit so the cap would slide over the nuts or coupler nuts. The end caps were simply slid over the hardware and glued to each end of the spinner. The stain, various shades of brown I played with until it looked nice.
