Arts & Crafts Mantle Clock #3: Ordering

1625 days ago by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I’m about to pull the trigger on my order from Klockit.com. I had a few questions about what to order, so I pinged their tech support. They don’t mention what size winding key to get. I’m assuming that it’s an eight-day movement, so that if you wind it every week, it’ll keep running. I grew up with clocks (i.e. grandfather, cuckoo, etc.), so I didn’t want a set that chimed. I think the pendulum length and swing will fit nicely with the design I’v...

Traffic Light Project #2: Finally some progress....

1166 days ago by souichiro | 1 comment »

Today marked two days in a row of progress on my light project. This, after over a week of beating my head on the bench with the electronics on the lighting. But….. finally I have the basic light circuit wired and working, and tested with the actual lights that will be mounted in when it’s complete. Now I’m waiting for the paint to dry, and assembly of the “lamp” portion tomorrow. I’ll post as soon as I can get it together, and post a video as soon as I...

New Logo / Looking Forward.

2003 days ago 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 ...

Skills Building #2: Clock Project - Mortise & Tenons galore

1461 days ago by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 3 comments »

They say that there’s nothing like practise to make you better at a skill. My cousin’s wedding is in June, and I decided in my new wood working glory to make a wedding present for them. After consulting my wife, we decided that building a clock would be a nice gift. So I spent some time searching the project archive here on LJ’s, and around the web. Saving pictures to the hard drive so that I could go back and forth to choose without having to bookmark the various pages t...

2574 days ago 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...

Flea Market Items...

1357 days ago by Builder_Bob | 2 comments »

Went flea market and antique shopping today. and surprising my wife bought nothing and I came home withfour items. How did I do? The modern plane is marked “Fulton 22” and looks to be in decent shape. $15. The old wooden plane looks like it had a rough life. It has a surprisingly sharp blade! $15. I couldn’t turn down the Skill saw clock. It actually ran after I untangled the hands. 1/2 price, 6$. Marking gauge.. either a poor attempt or a ...

Works in Progress #1: Clockwork

1397 days ago 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...
