I don't know about a Bose wave radio, but I do know that the radio will never sound as good as Pandora, or digital media. We have a Bose Soundlink Mini. ( https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/speakers/wireless_speakers/soundlink_mini_ii.html?mc=K2861305&gclid=CPXwxdS8kc4CFVcvgQodTDoKGQ ) It is wireless, rechargeable, and it sounds AMAZING. It sounds as good as the Harman Kardon stereo in the Wife's Mini Cooper.
Thanks everyone, and yes, she is a wonderful woman. She surprised me even further yesterday on our ride back to Wisconsin, when she said she would like to learn so she could help me. I always say I never win anything because I used up ALL of my luck when I met my wife. I am blessed, and grateful.
I do have a question. How will having the wood inside, in the AC affect it?
A request poured in for me to show how to build/make a wooden vase on a scroll saw.
Let me start this build by saying it is not the usual bench, table, or dresser you are used to seeing on this thread obviously. However I feel that a scroll saw is as much a wood working tool as a lathe or other specialty tool that you find in a wood working shop.
I started using a scroll saw as my first wood working tool in the early 90's. And although I have added a lot of tools to my shop over the years (a lathe is not one of them) I still find myself using the scroll saw for many things in my builds.
So, lets get started. Making a vase does not have to be as complicated as the segmented one that I posted a few days ago....
But, if segmented is what you want, segmented is what you get.
I start with three boards (cut offs) of 3/4" x 8" x 8" of walnut, maple, and cherry. Not much in the way of board feet is it? And cut them into 30 degree pie shapes on the table saw. This can be difficult but, can be done with a bit of practice.
Re arrange them to an interesting pattern and glue back into three boards.
The center hole is 3/4" diameter and filled with a piece of 3/4" dowel. The circle layout lines are drawn, and the scroll saw table is tilted to 20, 25 or 30 degrees. (this is something that must be calculated before drawing the circles...That is a whole different subject.) and you cut rings from each of your boards.
Some times they break due to poor gluing and must be re-glued. Close pins act as clamps for this purpose. Next you stack and glue the rings into a cone shape. You don't NEED the special clamp/jig to do this but, it does help. Make three cones of varying heights, one for bottom, middle and top as desired.
A spindle sander is VERY helpful in sanding the inside especially. Be sure to do all inside sanding BEFORE adding the bottom or gluing the cones together. The outside can be worked on a bit but, most of the final outside sanding is done after the cone glue-up.
Add the finish of your choice and that is all there is to it ! Piece of cake and a lot easier than you thought Huh ?
I've reworked it a bit using your suggestions. I've now got aprons running along the underside and I made the legs tapered. They now start as a 4x4 at the top and taper to a 2" diameter bottom. The aprons are 3x1 and I like the look of having them come through the top using mortise and tenon joints. You can also see the power switch located on the desk but that may get moved since i'm not too sure how I like it there.
