2 New Builds!

Over the past week or so I have made two new projects. The first is a glue bottle stand. This works great to hold your bottle upside down to keep the glue at the tip of the bottle. No more waiting for it to run down the sides. It is 5 inches tall and 5 inches wide. The bigger hole on the top section is 2 1/4″ diameter cut on the scroll saw. The hole on the middle section is 5/8″ in diameter cut on the drill press. After all the pieces are cut it simply needs a quick sanding and then assemble. I drilled a hole on the back portion so I could hang it on the wall when not in use.

This weeks project video was one that was long overdue. I have had camera stuff laying all over. Cameras here, batteries there, tripods somewhere else. Chaos! Sometimes I couldn’t find what I was looking for. It was time to organize it all. I had some left over 1/2″ plywood that I am using. Now I don’t have a tablesaw anymore (kind of rethinking that at this point), so I had to figure out a type of joinery that I could use with my tools. One of the best joints is the dadoes and that is the route that I chose. The outside perimeter got 3/8″ deep rabbets all the way around. For the inside compartments I just laid out my gear and figured out the best setup possible. The inside had two stopped dadoes which was a first for me on a router table, but turned out well. The outside walls were a minimum of 4 1/2″ tall and the inner walls were only 3″ tall to make everything easier to grab. Check out the video below to see it being made.
