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 few years ago and have been fascinated by the stuff he makes. I’ve also looked into building some kind of kinetic sculp...

Wooden Gear Clock #2: Making Plywood - Wooden Gear clocks

02-28-2012 11:39 PM by avgjay | 5 comments »

In the last post I mentioned I had decided to make my own plywood. I initially had two reasons; one was that I had a fairly large pile of Red Oak and Ash in my shop, and the second was that the thicknesses called for in the article, mostly 3/8” plywood, was not readily available locally. So I started by making a couple of test pieces. To see how easy the process was and if I was going to have enough time to complete all six clocks. First I cut a board to about 3’ in length...

I have had a severe case of Lifus Interuptus and with one thing leading to a BaZillion others I have been unable to sit down and put thoughts to screen, even now my Newfoundland is trying to see how much drool can fit in a keyboard. So sorry and hopefully the posts will be a little more regular for a while. Sssoooo… let us begin with the fun part of this project. Cutting the gears out. I am splitting th...

Shop Class #5: There is a First for Everyone

03-03-2009 04:03 AM by Tooldads_apprentice | 1 comment »

Well, as a shop student there are many projects that are new to me. I recently made my very first nightstand, I turned my very first pen about a month ago (and about 10 since), finishing up my first picture frame as well. My next project is going to try and build a unique clock. So, maybe the LJ crew can help me out. I am starting with a 3 1/2 inch diameter clock insert. Kind of simple, but still for my first one it should work. I am hoping to make it around a foot tall and maybe around 8R...

Weather Station: The Next Generation #4: Drill Here, Drill Now

04-17-2009 07:50 PM by newTim | 0 comments »

There are a number or holes required for this project. Here’s a list of purpose and sizes. Galileo = 1 1/2”, Dowels = 5/16”, Magnets = 10mm, Clock/Instruments = 2 3/8”, back air holes 3/4” to 1”. Here’s how I usually set the depth of cut. Instead of measuring from the top I set the drill to stop a distance from the bottom. To locate a centerline I usually rip a piece of scrap and butt the part up against a stop so both are flush to the ed...
