Church Clock Project #2: Erecting The Walls

02-21-2011 04:13 AM by William | 7 comments »

Today just started out to be one of those days. I ripped a four foot section of mahogany. Then I planed it down to a quarter inch so I could start laying out the walls of the church. I thought I was doing good. I had planed it all down and cut out three of the smaller walls before I noticed that something just didn’t look right. Upon further inspection, everything I had cut was not square. It wasn’t much, about a half of a degree off. As I’m sure most of you know, a half a d...

Church Clock Project #1: Build The Inside First

02-19-2011 05:15 AM by William | 4 comments »

Well it FINALLY happened. I finally got enough caught up on around here and had a good enough health day to start a new project. Until I can order my new plans, I wanted to get started on something else. So here goes.I decided to build a church clock. I’ve only built one of these before. When I did, a lady I know snatched it up and took it home with her before I even had a chance to take some decent photos of it. She was so excited I didn’t have the heart to tell her anything besi...

Help with a good secondary wood

01-30-2011 03:56 AM by ocwoodworker | 3 comments »

Hey Lumberjock friends!! I’m building a walnut lowboy entertainment center and wanted to use a secondary wood for the drawer bottoms. I know the usual suspect would be poplar but I’m looking for something with good grain structure but cheap. (Are the two even possible?) I tried Charles Neil blotch control for Baltic birch plywood but alas it still takes a stain/dye poorly. Any success stories out there?

The Evolution of my Base Table design

01-26-2011 07:32 PM by Bhaupt | 5 comments »

Initially the concept was to surround the model with railing that took on the shape of the cathedral. So I extended the lines of geometry to the surrounding railing. This gave me a starting point. The first plan was drawn in 1980. This is what it looked like. The railing was attached to a single table, The table was built in 82 w/o the rail detail, I did not have walnut wood at the time. The rail detail was to house light in a position that would be hidden but functional....
