The Puyallup Fair #1: Gearing up

1063 days ago by GodofBiscuits | 6 comments »

As some here know, I enjoy entering my woodworking projects in the local Fair Competitions. This year is no exception. Last year I entered a Wooden geared clock at the Orange County Fair in Southern California. This year I will be entering the same clock in the Puyallup Fair in Western Washington (My new home). I learned a lot at the OC Fair about displaying my clocks and how the way it is judged makes a huge difference in how it is awarded. The clock was delivered to the OC Fair in pieces, s...

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

1048 days ago 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...

Works in Progress #1: Clockwork

1480 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...

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

2681 days ago 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...

Novice Rambling Quickie #4: Eureka!

1512 days ago by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 2 comments »

Okay, it’s not something I can gain a lot of prestige or money from, but it’s a personal Eureka moment that I had to struggle with on my own to understand. Being of scientific mind, I couldn’t let the issue lie from my last blog post on the shifting shades of my clock face. If the hypothesis in my blog post is out to lunch, I would love to discuss it here or on my blog site.

Clock Update - Hurry Up and Wait!

1514 days ago by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 5 comments »

Progress being made on my clock project – Ironic that I’m having to continue my learning of patience on a project to make a time measurement piece. Check out my progress here to read about my exploits as I reflect and continue this project. Here are also some additional pictures I decided to not include in the blog.Rear side of the face & frame assembly. There’s a gap between the face and the lower rail of the frame to allow the pendulum to swing freely. Note that ...

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 ...

Outside Clock #1: Gathering Ideas

2188 days ago 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...

Pics and more pics!

2111 days ago by TheKingInYellow | 4 comments »

As promised, pictures! I’ll warn you now, I take a lot of them :D First of all, here I am in my ‘shop’, and I use that term loosely! You can see basically all the equipment I have: Ridgid saw, Ryobi SCMS and Drill Press and a Mastercraft (Canadian Tire special) Router and Router Table. I’m pretty happy with all the equipment, but the router and table are pretty cheap. They’ll do for now. So the first big part of this project was the resawing of t...
