Stickley High Chest #5: Almost done

02-28-2011 09:04 PM by Greg | 6 comments »

This is the last entry in this series of blogs. My next post will be in the Projects post as the completed project. All that remains is sanding the top with lubricated 600 grit sand paper and installing some drawer stops. I did have a couple of set backs that I had to work through:1. The bottom drawer did not slide very well. The dovetailed drawer slide was binding when moving the drawer in and out. I had removed a little material from the part of the slide that attached to the dus...

Church Clock Project #6: Open For Service

02-24-2011 08:27 PM by William | 8 comments »

Lord bless the UPS guy!Ok. Maybe that was just a tad in poor taste, but I was so happy that my clock and new plans arrived. I was not happy that I failed to read the part about, “battery NOT included”. I started to town to get one since it is an odd sized type N battery. I stopped for gas though, and after getting over the sticker shock of the thirty cent increase in gas since I filled up my wife’s Jeep yesterday, I made the decision that the clock doesn’t actually hav...

Church Clock Project #5: It'll Be Ready For Service By Sunday

02-24-2011 06:17 AM by William | 9 comments »

First things first today, I had to finish cutting the lower side gable trim.Here’s a view of the side gable trim pieces in place.Here’s the front side gable trim. Also, this is where my day started getting uh, umm, interesting. I think that’s a good description of it.I cut these two pieces, but for some reason they were too short. It took a lot of head scratching for me to figure out how and why. When I done the roof, I didn’t follow the plans. Since I had built this b...

Church Clock Project #4: It's In The Details

02-23-2011 06:22 AM by William | 5 comments »

Since I had a very productive day and have lots to show, I’m just going to jump right in.Gables, dormers, doghouses. I’m not sure what to call them. I call them dormers. I was told today though that they are called gables. In this photo though, on the left I guess you could call my jig to build them. It is just a simple square that is, well, square. The two sides of each gable has a 45 degree bevel across the top, a 35 degree bevel down the back, and a 20 something degree angle go...

Church Clock Project #3: Raising The Roof

02-22-2011 06:02 AM by William | 4 comments »

This first photo today is one I forgot to put in the last blog. I wanted to show the doors. I really am not quite sure of the significance of this particular design on a church door. It is what is on the pattern though and I think it looks nice. I had debated on changing it to something different, maybe a cross. Maybe I will on the next one, but I decided to leave it alone on this one though. The first order of business today was to add supports for the roof. I decided to use much beefier sup...

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...
