It's a jet entry level lathe. #1236, I think they don't make it anymore.

A the lathe turns

Winter projects out of scrap wood! I've been wanting to try making things out of segmented rings to produce some pretty nice bowls and plates. It uses all those scraps but it IS VERY TIME CONSUMING!

7 x 11 X 11" high "flower pot"



"sugar bowl" 6'" with lid,


"Candy dish"


All 3 on the end grain cutting board



Scrap woods used, Beech (mostly), mahogany, maple, cherry, chestnut, aromatic red cedar (wild grain patterns)

I finally got through all the posts in
this thread. Bookmarked lots of things
along the way.

Let's keep 'em coming.

Cool. Very nautical. I want to do one of the rooms in our house to look exactly like the cabin of an old Herreshoff boat (it would need a galley and head too, b/c if I actually did this my wife would probably make me live in there!)

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

A few weeks back we were posting projects that were not necessarily boat-related, I showed you all the table pedestal and bench I made for our kids' condo.
I also built a dinette/banquette (that's why we had to modify the 4 legged table to a pedestal base). The move was made last week and the banquette installed. My wife sewed the cushions as well....

They have storage (under seat and behind short end seat back) much in the style of a boat's settees.

btw.. the lamp base is full of sea glass found on BC, Nova Scotia, Caribbean and Mexican beaches

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Since our boom is low enough to hit your head on the way out the companionway, we've gotten into the habit of securing our boom to the starboard side. We have a bungee cord that pulls it toward a stanchion, and tighten up the mainsheet. The opposing forces keep it from jostling around. If there's a storm coming, we'll use clothesline instead of the bungee cord to make sure everything is tightly secured.

I use my gybe preventer to secure the boom

I hope your dodger frame is skookum enough to take the loading.. I'd prefer to tie that off to a toerail or a outboard cleat...
