Scott and Jay's "Shop Time Throwdown" #13: Final steps and the REVEAL VIDEO!

04-06-2015 08:00 PM by MrToolHunter | 0 comments »

Note: Don’t miss the link to the video at the bottom of the post! The final steps happened in a blur over the Easter weekend. The big reveal was pushed back to Easter day, 4/5/15 and because of the reprieve I did what I always do: procrastinate. So while the photos in this post are sparse the payoff will make it worthwhile. Using my Shopsmith bandsaw I resawed a 22” length of 2X4 and freehand drew a capital “I”, “V” and “X”. Drawing isn&...

We were contacted by a client to restore his Boulle cartel clock. Boulle is no fun to restore, it is time consuming and quite a special. For budget reasons we are restoring his piece by stages. The clock is composed of 3 parts and each of them will be restored in 3 sessions. We will start with the top We remove the bronzes The unglued brass pieces are lifted and rubbing is made for the missing brass elements The cavities are full of oxidized glue that nee...

Scott and Jay's "Shop Time Throwdown" #7: One of the most uncomfortable things I've ever done with a woodworking project

03-23-2015 04:44 PM by MrToolHunter | 3 comments »

It’s time to add some texture to the slats that will make up the dial of my clock. An a previous project I ran similar strips of pine over a wore brush prior to finishing and I was generally pleased with the results, but I recall it taking a crazy-long time to get the depth of texture that I desired. Recently I’ve been catching up on a backlog of videos by Jimmy DiResta and in one he torched and then wire brushed similar pine boards and it was clear that I had my solution. The ...

Scott and Jay's "Shop Time Throwdown" #3: A little insight into the design of my clock

03-11-2015 05:48 PM by MrToolHunter | 0 comments »

I mentioned in the video from by previous post that my plan is to build a large clock, somewhat inspired by a tower clock that I once help to repair. That clock was in the tower of the Lebanon, Ohio City Hall building and though that experience was over 25 years ago it is still a high point of my horological career. I also mentioned that in 1982 when I was in school at Gem City College School of Horology I read an article about a “Mystery Clock” that was on display in the ...

Scott and Jay's "Shop Time Throwdown" #1: The challange is extended and accepted.

03-09-2015 06:09 PM by MrToolHunter | 0 comments »

Back in February I noticed that one of my buddies on Youtube had fallen off the face of the earth, so I tossed him a note and learned that he had fallen into a funk. In order to get him back from he dark side I decided to issue a challenge that would force us both back into our shops. Here’s the original challenge video: http://youtu.be/nodCUmv8fns Here’s Jay’s acceptance video:http://youtu.be/cn-fDmvgXuk Here are our self-imposed rules: Beginning the first week o...

The clock story.

12-08-2014 01:34 AM by AKDave | 1 comment »

A few years ago I saw plans for a clock that I rally liked and have wanted to build ever since. So, about a month ago, I decided that it was finally time to do it. Needing Christmas presents for my four adult kids and their families, I decided to make 5, one for each kid and one for myself. So, even though I was already into two projects, (two more commissioned caskets) and I don’t really like to do different projects concurrently, I started on them. Being big on symbolism and wanted t...
