Just received a mail from woodstore net with an offer to buy a “plan” of clamp rack.
In case you cannot figure out how to screw together 4 pieced of plywood you can buy instructions for $2.99.

I would really be curious to see what the plans actually look like.
Step 1 – Cut some plywood to these sizes
Step 2 – Screw said plywood together
Step 3 – Screw to wall
Step 4 – Profit

I wouldn’t buy plans for this, but it’s not a bad idea.

In case you’re not sure how to drill some holes in a board and bolt it to your lathe…

The thing most beginners struggle with is conceptualization. On a forum of dedicated wood workers these don’t make a lot of sense, but they do serve a purpose.

To all those beginners, look around though. You can find a lot of plans for simple stuff like that for free.

I was thinking the same thing. Some ideas seem so simple once you lay eyes on them.

There’s this door that every time the wind blows it swings opens. Does anyone have a source of plans to build something like this?

If I can find the plans I was thinking of building it out of bubinga or perhaps Carpathian elm burl … your thoughts?

You could make this with your spring pole lathe Ron! ;-)

I could … but I’d really like to mix it up and try building it with just a 24” jack plane and marking knife. But I still need those plans!
