Here’s an update on the walnut clock. The face isn’t finished as of yet but it won’t take long, just a couple of circles, a signature, and a border.The case is almost finished. I need to wax it and install the works. Well come to think of it there’s still a lot to do. Here’s the case. And the hood with an unfinished face. I should be finished very soon. More later.

Almost there. I’ve still got the handle to put in and a plug in the front – then I’m taking the dog to work to get a friend to paint on the face. The little metal caps that go on the axles were, to say the least, a bear to put on. if you have gorilla hands you could do it, but I had to use a hammer! The dog has a good turning radius. I like the eyes – -they look a lot like my dog’s eyes. Hopefully I’ll have the dog done this week. I&...
Work on the entertainment center is pushing ahead slowly. Even with a few days off work finding shop time is difficult with holidays and company. I spent most of the last weekend milling lumber and widdling away at the cut list which consist of over 250 pieces not counting the hardware and lighting. Anyway I offer this pictoral progress. Here is the about 80% of the cut list stacked on my portable cart. Still have some large sheet goods to cut for sides, top center section, and all th...
We live in an old house that has been added on to several times. It’s pretty uggggly on the outside, but I got a good deal on it long ago. The interior doors were those really cheap and cheesy hollow core doors. Well they add to go, and several of them have been recycled during other remodeling projects we recently did. The baseboards are missing! Well, those too were removed when we put in the hardwood floors, or decided that of the 4 rooms and 4 different styles, perhaps we s...
Well. I have just built my first “complex” jig for wood working. I have built a jig to template route a game for my cousin’s wife. I was alot of work laying it out. I took alot of advice and came up with a peg board start to the template, to a plywood template. Now I just need to modify the template a little to fit comfortably a 5/8th in bushing. I made the holes with a 5/8ths in forstner bit. I think I am going to just wrap some sand paper orund a 1/2 in dowel and widen the...
Well, Tony Berrett just bought my shop machinery. I told him joining Lumber Jocks was a must. I hope everyone here will make him welcome as I know you will. I also told him that you would all be more than willing to help him out when he has questions. Since I won’t have the internet for a while, I took this liberty for all of my friends here on LJ. I wouldn’t do that but I know you’re good for it. LOL I still have custody to finish some things I need for the move. Good luc...
No. Its a highly engineered, precision instrument capable of lining up the parts of a Weather Station so accurate holes can be drilled for a perfect fit. In other words, a jig.
I’ve put the finish on the train bed. It is just the base color. The rest will be a vinyl similar to what the car wraps are made from. On the base I used a black lacquer undercoater and a flat black lacquer. I’ll do a little bit of assembly on it before it goes to the graphic people. Here are some pictures after the finish: For more building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us build this or see what we are doing live:
