Resin and Wood Pendant

My 1 year wedding anniversary is coming up and, traditionally, you are suppose to give your spouse paper for that anniversary but I decided to spice it up a bit and make a paper flower and embed it in resin surrounded by wood and turn it into a necklace for my wife. This is how I did it.

Spice Board (Rack)

When we moved in to our current place, there was a spice rack installed in one of the cabinets but it was pretty high up and my wife had a hard time reaching it. We have a baker’s rack with a top shelf that seemed like a better place to store spices so I made a simple spice board-rack-thing so we could store spices in a more convenient place. This is how I made it.

Drill Lathe

I have an old, cheapo drill that I rarely use so I decided to turn it into a lathe. The lathe is made from 8 pieces of wood mostly 3/4″ x 3 1/5″ boards with one part made from a 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ board. It’s simple and easy and this video shows how I did it. It works quite well for turning cork.
