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

02-09-2011 02:31 AM 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...

Grandfather Clock

08-02-2014 04:07 PM by Jeff | 2 comments »

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...

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...

Sprocket Clock #1: Gears!

12-08-2009 04:58 PM by GoGoZRX | 3 comments »

I cut the gears as best I could… using a sprocket as a template, I traced the outline of 6 teeth onto some paper. I then traced it onto the clock. i didn’t have a drill press, or the right size bit, so I free-handed the holes, then used the band saw, and the dremel. It went back on the lathe to turn off the gouges I made with the drill, and to get a final sanding on the face. I used Minwax furniture wax. click on the image for a full sized version.and waxed:

03-24-2016 11:53 PM by Patricelejeune | 14 comments »

It has been a while since I posted anything as a friend reminded me couple days ago. So I thought I would do an update on couple projects I have been working on. On an earlier post I had shown the start of a restoration on a Boulle clock. We had restored the top part, since I have been working on the 2 lower elements. I did not took a lot of picture of the restoration of the middle section But I documented better the restoration of the lower section that was partic...

Scott and Jay's "Shop Time Throwdown" #7: One of the most uncomfortable things I've ever done with a woodworking project

03-23-2015 04:44 PM by MrToolHunter | 3 comments »

It’s time to add some texture to the slats that will make up the dial of my clock. An a previous project I ran similar strips of pine over a wore brush prior to finishing and I was generally pleased with the results, but I recall it taking a crazy-long time to get the depth of texture that I desired. Recently I’ve been catching up on a backlog of videos by Jimmy DiResta and in one he torched and then wire brushed similar pine boards and it was clear that I had my solution. The ...
