This was our first time building a wooden lamp base and it turned out better than we imagined. If you would like to make your own follow along and see how easy it is to build.
Since the bearing on the flush trim router bit failed I did not have a replacement bearing so I had to purchase another router bit. Now its time to get dusty in the workshop. MDF, its not my material of choice but I’m deep into it now. Time to get busy working on this race car bed.
A local horse owner owns 4 horses and a show wagon. He was in need of another set of these, not sure what they are called. Anyway, he dropped off the piece of equipment and a plank of hardwood.
Its important to give back to the community when and where you can. For my wife and I, we have taken on the responsibility to take some of our time and resources to ensure the upkeep of the local cemetery that is adjacent to the Kings United Church, located on South River Lake in Loch Katrine, Nova Scotia. I soon learned that there are 5 graves that do not have markers. I just couldn’t see letting that continue. I have no relation to anybody buried there but I truly felt it important that each grave be marked.

First pass completed with the router sled. Many, many more to go. Its a slick setup for making wooden cylinders.
This project I made from a photo in a magazine. It is 36 inches long and 8 inches wide at the the top shelf. Made of 3/4 inch #2 pine most of which was scrap stock from the bin. The crown molding was my second attempt at using a 2 inch multi profile molding bit.
