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...
Very sturdy. At first I thought "not to this" but to get it anywhere else meant a trip hazard over the walk way or onto a wooden grab rail on the house top.

I use my gybe preventer to secure the boom

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.

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

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!)

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)

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

Denise, have you seen the stuff Dabnis does along those lines? (You'll have to check him out on SA - he got a vacation here for being a dick)

Show us your lathe too - is a bowl lathe or conventional?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

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


got me wondering about it... I bought this thing about12 years ago. Harbor fright sells the same thing with their name on it. So.. it's a JWL-1236 but a retagged offshore make like just about everything we buy. All that aside it's great for my modest turning needs.
