Charlotte Mercer Towel Ring November 21st, 2018 - 04:13:19
A towel rack for our bathroom out of some C clamps and some old lumber. I used an 80 grit flap disc, on a piece of steel that I had that was about 1/8 of an inch thick. Then I cut it to length here. You can see me welding the clamps onto the piece of eighth inch. For the weld, another important thing to note here is that the welder that I'm using is just a cheap, big-box store flux, core gas less welder, so the welds are not very pretty on this, and the max that that can handle is about 3/16 inch, steel, which the clamps are pretty much pushing the capacity of this welder, but it does the trick for what I needed to do after I got all of the clamps welded onto the plate.
I went ahead and I tacked the threads so that the threads wouldn't turn, and I also welded the little handles that you see there the little sliding handles. I didn't want any moving parts on the finished towel rack from then on. It was just a lot of grinding to try and make something halfway, decent looking out of those terrible welds. The next thing I did was cut apart, an old piece of wood that I found in our attic it had.
Some nice saw marks on it and I thought that would really add to the industrial and rustic look of what I was going for here. I'm just cutting off all of the unusable parts of the wood. Then I just cleaned up one edge on the joiner and cut it down to final size on the table, saw I sanded it with just sandpaper no sanding block because I didn't want to remove any of those nice old saw marks. Then I just used a plane here to break the corners and the edges so they're a little smoother.
