    Default SEPTEMBER 2018 Project of the Month - "Pretty Pumpkin Table Caddy"!

    Hello,

    The “Pretty Pumpkin Table Caddy” is a functional and attractive Autumn table item. Ideal for your Thanksgiving table decor, too!

    The Pretty Pumpkin panels hold napkins for your table guests, while the base features recesses for setting your salt and pepper shakers, as well. The photo shows wooden salt and pepper shakers from a separate CarveWright project, but you can stow any shakers you wish.

    The project uses just the 1/16" Carving Bit and the 1/8" Cutting Bit. No other bits are required.

    Main items you will need:

    1) The Project File(s) (included):
    • Pumpkin_Panels.mpc
    • Base_Pumpkin.mpc

    BONUS: This project includes a separate Pumpkin PTN file for you to use in any other project you wish!

    2) Boards with the following dimensions:
    Pumpkin Panels: 0.75" x 9" x 22"
    Base: 0.75" x 9" x 18”

    NOTE: Do not use boards that are smaller than specified above unless using an appropriate jig.

    3) Sandpaper, glue, stain and/or paint and clear finish

    4) A Dremel-type rotary tool with assorted sanding wheels and bits to sand small details. Optional tools: a small bench top belt sander, spindle sander

    Apply the finish of your choice. Here’s what I used on the sample made from Select Pine:

    Pumpkin Panels:
    • 3 coats of thinned Bulls Eye SealCoat (50/50 sealer and denatured alcohol). Sanded between coats.
    • Several light coats of Krylon Clear spray (gloss, then satin) spray, as final clearcoats

    Base:
    • Applied Rust-Oleum Wheat Stain
    • Several light coats of Krylon Clear spray (gloss, then satin) spray, as final clearcoats
