Two years after I built the stool in the previous blog post I was taking 10th grade wood shop at Marietta High School. We had a full wood shop and an excellent teacher, Mr Spofford. He was serious about having his students build big projects. So, in 10th grade for High School shop class, I built a grandfather clock from plans. It took the entire school year to complete. The clock is built out of solid black walnut. The spindles and the molding are only thing I did not make. All credit goe...
Due to catastrophic structural failure during the carving process, I am laying this project to rest. While the breakout in the back was more severe than I thought it would be, I could work that out. Not so the splits in the outer wall of the piece. Although fun while it lasted ( I will be redoing this project in the future, but in walnut as I believe a harder wood will stand up to the stresses of the carving needed to accomplish the design), I will now be on to other projects, the Sawcliffe G...

The Greene brothers used ebony extensively in their furniture and architectural pieces and that use has become a trademark of their woodworking designs. I wanted to try to stay true to their designs and use actual ebony plugs in the Greene and Greene style clocks I am building. I was not impressed with the shouldered plug design the plans called for and wanted true pillowed ebony plugs in my clocks. Pricing Ebony, I decided that I would have to come up with some other method of getting my plu...
O.K. Let’s get to the first project. So like a lot of woodworkers I have taken to making some Christmas presents and since I have six nephews, all around the same age they tend to get similar gifts. So the year before last they got puzzle boxes courtesy of a book/DVD combo Puzzle Boxes by Jeff Vollmer which they loved. I highly recommend it. This year I wanted to make something they would love just as much and would also scratch a woodworking itch, remember I am an addict and love ...
I don’t know what time it is!!! If only I had a clock!But not just any clock. A four foot long digital clock made out of antique mahogany wood. Guess it is time to make some sawdust! I bought a board of reclaimed mahogany from woodcraft: Then I created a pattern for the led segments: I used a scroll saw to cut the segments out of the wood, and a plunge router to hollow out the back side of the wood: Add some wood varnish to the top side: I used little pieces of brass supe...
