After posting the video for the Kitchen Helper, a number of people requested if I constructed the little Salt Cellar we have now in our kitchen. I didn’t. However I made a decision the design was simple sufficient that I’d attempt to make a replica for myself and perhaps a couple of additional as presents. After about 2 hours, I had my first one. It was so fast and straightforward that I went again and made three extra the subsequent day! In the event you or somebody in your life likes to prepare dinner, you’re undoubtedly going to need to make a couple of!
This venture is fairly primary and actually requires no formal plans. All that you must do is determine on a form you want and draw it onto your blanks. However if you wish to make the identical teardrop form I did, you’ll need to obtain and print this template at precise measurement. I just about simply scanned the highest and backside of my Salt cellar so it’s nothing too fancy. Reduce out each shapes and use the bigger one when chopping your blanks to tough measurement, then use the smaller one simply previous to bandsawing as proven within the video.
You’ll want two blanks milled to 1 5/eight″ thick and one piece milled to half″ thick.
*CORRECTION* – The blanks ought to all be about 5″ W x 6″ L, not 5″ x 5″ as said within the video. Don’t be afraid to combine your species for visible impact. This can be a nice venture for giant eight/four cut-offs which may not have some other use for!
Nearly any threaded insert meant for hardwood will do the trick, however right here’s one that ought to work fairly well. As for bolts, I like to recommend 2 three/four″ lengthy connector bolts.
