Pour-over coffee stands

Post by dave_the_nerd » Sun Nov 08, 2015 1:33 am

A couple of these are going out for gifts this year. (Pretty sure they don't hang out here, so I doubt it'll ruin the surprise.)

Used the SO2 to cut the slots for the inlay strips, cut out the inlay strips (1/8" thick maple), hollow out the bottom side of the base for the metal, and make the funnel holder piece and the nuts. There are edge-gaps in the inlay, unfortunately, which surprised me - I may be developing a runout problem. Hopefully humidity will hide my sins.

The pockets for the base weights were purposefully oversized, since the disks weren't quite perfectly round and I wanted to squeeze some epoxy into the sides as well. (It's on the underside of the finished product, so it's not like anybody will ever see it.)

Bases were weighted with a 5" disc of 304 stainless steel. Came pre-cut, since I don't have anything to work with that. Did a half-arsed job of polishing it with some leftover sanding discs and compound from one of those 3M headlight polishing kits.

Almost everything came out of two 1x4x48 mahogany* boards I got from Menards. It could have been a single one, but I cut it like an idiot. Bases were edge-glued together. The centerline inlay strip covers the seam and the metal base should reinforce that. The "screws" were made from a walnut dowel, since I couldn't find a mahogany one. Finish is 4-5 coats of boiled linseed oil. (Hence the shots from the kitchen and its easily-cleaned countertop.) The wide variation in finished "color" surprised me, what with it all being from the same board, so vive la difference.

*possibly "mahogany" - not sure, the grain looks right, but it was suspiciously cheap and the unfinished board was lighter than the stuff I've seen elsewhere.

Everything was rounded off on a router table. No SVGs of DXFs because it was basically all straight lines and circles.

Did you make the screw threads on a lathe or did you use the Shapeoko somehow?

Taps and dies specifically for wood threading. I cut out the nuts on the shapeoko (inner and outer circle) and ran the tap through twice to make the sure the nuts would be a bit loose. (To leave room for finish.)

Only had to make 7 to get 4 good ones. :lol: :oops:

Ah...I made a Moxon-style vise and I ended up using threaded rod from Home Despot. I didn't want to buy a screw box for a single project. (Although, I might be able to justify it if I make a plow-plane)

I was wondering if you'd found a better way with the CNC. I ordered my Shapeoko last week. I have a Unimat desktop lathe that was my Father-in-Law's, but I haven't quite figured it out. The thing with inheriting machinist tools is that I can't tell which are traditional tools/fixtures and which things he made for himself after 40-odd years of experience.

Use the Unimat (I’m jealous).

Post any fixture / jig designs here — we’ll puzzle them out.
