|I am coining a new wood. I am calling it a Handie. |
It is not a selfie, it is a photo of something held in your...
wait for it.....
This is a Handie of the cylinder that I made in the shop, without a lathe
How did I make them without a lathe?
I used a set of hole saws.
The is a whole selection of hole saw bits available.
My set are a middle price range set.
I cut the large cylinder from both ends first. Then I used the pre-existing centre hole to guide a smaller hole saw to cut out the middle. Hold the cylinder in some sort of clamp, not your hand, Remember Safety First.
I glued a thin piece of wood on to one end and sanded to 400 grit. The prototype turned out not bad. I will make another one, but shorter and figure out how I want the lid to look. This is sort of the same idea as a band saw box with the ends being re-glued after the machining is done.
I'll keep you posted.
