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...

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...

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...

the clock #1: Working on my daughter's birthday gift

02-21-2011 07:58 AM by twokidsnosleep | 6 comments »

This has been long in the planning with many ups and downs. It is still not finished though her birthday is the 21st of Feb; I will be late with this, but make it as perfect as I can. I don’t have that much free time to blast off a whole weekend at it in the shop so it has been months in the works.Have had to buy some new tools, big and small and stop myself from buying some others and just use some elbow grease and ingenuity. The body is maple and the accents purple heart. Le...

Simplicity Wooden Clock #1: The Plan

02-20-2010 08:39 PM by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Since I can’t afford a bunch of quarter sawn white oak to finish the dining table right now, I thought I’d look for a project that requires less materials. Having just read “Longitude” by Dava Sobel, I’ve been fascinated by wooden clocks. Being a Mechanical Engineer, I also have an affinity for anything with gears. I found woodgears.ca few years ago and have been fascinated by the stuff he makes. I’ve also looked into building some kind of kinetic sculp...

Weather Station #1: And away we go...

03-09-2009 01:06 AM by newTim | 5 comments »

Now that I finished the Japanese Garden Bench I had the chance to begin a project I’ve been noodling about since Christmas. This is exactly how I like things to go. Always have a book to read, always have a project on the bench, always have a project set to go. BTW, the book, Atlas Shrugged. 1,100+ pages. The most relevant book I’ve read, I highly recommend it, but I digress. In the pictures you can get a sense of what I’m shooting for. A Galileo Thermometer flanked w...

the clock #2: time ticks on

03-01-2011 07:51 AM by twokidsnosleep | 2 comments »

Moved a couple steps closer to the finish line over the weekend. My push list includes:1.Make a back with inlay heart2. Final sand everything so no tool marks3. Devise arm, foot and face attachments4. Stain and varnish5. Clock parts attached For the back I tried to find purpleheart veneer as I wanted to put it over MDF…. it was $85.00 for a roll, so Itried to make the veneer myself. There was no way my saw would cut it thin enough as it is set up and the blade dulled from the ...

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...
