  • Yarn Storage Cabinet

    notes:
    - found a drafting program that runs on native linux (DraftSight). it worked pretty good. the design was supposed to have a bit of a Japanese Shinto feel to it.
    - pine
    - through/pinned tenons for the frame thing. more just for effect though, everything is glued in and you can't remove them!
    - finish schedule for the "old" distressed look: 1 coat brown milk paint. rubbed candle wax on some areas. 1 coat red milk paint, then card scraper and sand paper over the waxed areas to make the red flake off. 3 coats pure tung oil on top.
    - had a lot of fun using the spoke shave on this one, it was a new toy and want to use it more now!

              thx.

              Great job. Love the finish colour chosen.
              MartyFromKingston that was my first time using milk paint. There's a bunch of interesting colours to choose from. I'm probably gunna try milk paint again, I like the effects you can get with it when I was playing around with scraps.

              you mean I could build something to hide my wife's yarn!?!?! why haven't I thought of that?
              maytagman hehe, yeah and apparently I didn't make it big enough! It took my friend about 30 seconds to fill it!

                    rfielder 38 inches tall, 53 inches wide, 23 inches deep. The funny measurements there are due to some post-design fudging to make stuff work

                        Methinks you could have made it 96 wide, 24 deep, and 96 tall, and it would still have been filled faster than a beer glass in Oktoberfest!

                          I have selected Jamie's thread here as our "Best Build" thread in our Dec/Jan 2018 issue. Lee Valley has sent Jamie a Veritas Dual Marking Gauge for his hard work sharing this build with us.

                          Thanks Jamie!
