Green and Greene Style Clock #3: Ebony plugs? Well, sorta.

05-13-2012 04:17 AM by GodofBiscuits | 3 comments »

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...

Wooden Gear Clock #1: On with the Show

02-23-2012 12:06 AM by avgjay | 1 comment »

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 ...

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...

The Puyallup Fair #3: Let the panic set in!

08-29-2011 12:01 AM by GodofBiscuits | 6 comments »

Today was the day! I drove out to Puyallup and dropped off the clock. The stand and clock fit very nicely in the car and had tons of room. Upon arriving at the fair grounds and finding the appropriate area to drop off, I was greeted by one of the volunteers. After some confusion about size maximums (item must not be more than 80 inches over all, width + length) I got everything out of the car and began setting up. Thankfully there were plenty of people on hand to settle the dimension confusio...

The Puyallup Fair #2: No wait... scratch that!

08-26-2011 08:38 AM by GodofBiscuits | 6 comments »

So I’ve had a little luck (Big thank you to WoodArtbyJR) getting a hold of the Hobby Hall people at the Fair and talked about my options for displaying the clock. The first option was a half wall above the display cases they store most the entries. This would be ok if the wall wasn’t 4 feet tall and started more than 6 feet above the ground. This meant, my clock would have to be displayed without the pendulum as the entire clock is over 5 feet in length with the pendulum installed...
