  • Game: What will it be

    Anyone interested in a game of "What will it be?" I just made a small and ordinary project. I will post photos of progress with some dimensions, You all can guess what it will be. You guys will likely have it long before it is even roughed out (or warted up, lol), but dissecting set-ups might be good sport.


    Shall I proceed?

              Faced side A. Turned a step: 3.750" OD, 3.085" ID by 0.300" deep - finished dims. Center is simply roughed out to define ID of step.

              Edit: actually, the ID was just roughed to 3" at this point. I didn't plan the order of operations very well

                It's something that mounts on a lathes cross slide in place of the compound. Or 1/2 of a lazy Susan.

                        A base for your wife's potted geranium?
                        no?

                        A base for your wife's potted petunias?
                        no?

                        A base for .... Never mind, I'm out of ideas.

                          Faced side B, cut a step 3.740" OD x 0.135 deep finished dim. Roughed ID to 3" maybe 70 thou deep.

                            Yes, obviously a base, so we'll move ahead a bit:

                            Trim the corners:




                            So I can square edges C & D on shaper:


                            Just making edges symmetrical gave a width of 5.435, now finished dim.

                            Edit: Anything to get the shaper in the picture!
