Outside Clock #1: Gathering Ideas

07-14-2008 07:06 PM by MsDebbieP | 13 comments »

July 14, 2008 Last month I purchased a double-sided clock (which happens to match the one I had purchased earlier this year for my living room.) My intention was for it to hang outside so I could see it from almost anywhere in my yard. With our LumberJocks’ picnic being this past weekend I wanted to have the clock put up, if only temporarily. And so we selected its hanging place, attached the bracket to the deck post and hung the clock. The problem is that the clock is not...

New Logo / Looking Forward.

10-24-2008 01:43 PM by pashley | 11 comments »

Moving further down the road to starting a professional shop, I’ve designed my own logo, seen here: I’ve had a stamp made up of it, so I can “sign” my projects. I think it will look professional. I did want to use Maker's Marks, but this guy is impossible to get a hold of; I’m guessing he is incredibly busy. Anyhow, I think it came out well. I’ve also done more planning on what to make and sell. I have a small shop, so making huge furniture is ...

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #4: Making a Rustic Clock

04-03-2007 01:38 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 10 comments »

On #3 of this series I flattened out a slice from a Birch stump. I went on & completed the job today. I also added it to My Projects.The size is about 25” x 20’ x 2 1/2” , & it weighs about 20 pounds. I made the motor cavity larger to lighten it up a little. _The other day I routed out the backside for the clock motor. I checked out the motor installation. Carved some numbers on the face. I carved a Maple leaf for the pendulum weight. I hung the clock...

Wood Gear Clock

04-08-2010 09:12 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 10 comments »

I have always had a fascination with how things work. As a kid I drove my parents’ crazy taking things apart but it was part of learning. Even today I will look at something a wonder how it was made or how it works. For most things I believe that if someone else can do it then so can I, now I am not saying that I am smarter than anyone else, I believe for the most part that all of us can figure most things out if we try. Around a year ago I was looking at a pendulum clock, I have always...

Digital Clock #1: A Clockwork Mahogany: Making a digital clock

09-18-2011 04:53 AM by Wes Grimes | 9 comments »

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...

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #3: I'm changing my tune about my pin router

03-09-2007 09:16 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 9 comments »

Remember yesterday, I was thinking about getting rid of that big old Stanley Pin Router. After looking at what it can be used for, I’ve changed my mind. I dug out this big chunk of Birch sawed from a stump. (A logger was kind enough to leave it there after cutting it.) In about 2 hours I flattened the thing out, pretty handy hey.For all the years I’ve had this machine, my only thought of for using this was pin routing. I’m now going to make fence setup, so I can drill mortis...

Arts & Crafts Mantle Clock #1: One for You, One for Me...

10-24-2009 06:56 PM by CaptainSkully | 8 comments »

I figured it was time to start another new blog. We’ve got friends that are getting married, and we wanted to give them something special. I figure the best gift you can give is one you want for yourself, so I’m going to make two while I’m at it. We originally thought about a mirror, but realized shipping it would be problematic. Then I thought about the clock project that had been bouncing around in the back of my head. After my usual extensive research, this is the de...

Works in Progress #1: Clockwork

06-22-2010 04:05 AM by tyskkvinna | 7 comments »

As I have mentioned in a few places, I am in the middle of moving my workplace. Which is where my shop is. It’s going to be at LEAST another month before I get to unpack, maybe more. Things are in an annoying limbo. I went down to the old place today to bang out a few things. I had more ideas in mind but they have to wait. Humidity and I are having a raging battle and I’m on the loosing side of the war. Sigh. But, I had a stack of designs I had cut earlier that needed some b...

Arts & Crafts Mantle Clock #2: Disappointment

11-02-2009 05:34 PM by CaptainSkully | 7 comments »

I finally received my shipment from Rockler. I opened up the packaging for one set of the AA powered quartz movement w/ pendulum and one package of the hands that I had selected. I assembled them and hung them on the wall. It took me a second (literally) to realize that the second hand was moving backwards. Also, the pendulum wouldn’t keep swinging. The hands also kept coming off the drive shaft. I reassembled after verifying the diagram on the back of the packaging. Still unacce...
