Church Clock Project #4: It's In The Details

02-23-2011 06:22 AM by William | 5 comments »

Since I had a very productive day and have lots to show, I’m just going to jump right in.Gables, dormers, doghouses. I’m not sure what to call them. I call them dormers. I was told today though that they are called gables. In this photo though, on the left I guess you could call my jig to build them. It is just a simple square that is, well, square. The two sides of each gable has a 45 degree bevel across the top, a 35 degree bevel down the back, and a 20 something degree angle go...

PARABOLIC DESIGN #1: Ellipse formed from a Parabola

02-23-2011 05:01 AM by BertFlores58 | 9 comments »

A section cut from a conical solid along the vertical axis will give us a parabola. I don’t want to explain much on how it constructed however this parabola can be cut using straight line cuts. On sketch up, it looks like this - From the looks on the drawing… a lot of planning came up with the following questions as my guide: 1. What wood should I use? At first, I was about to use a plywood with flats be covered with veneer of two different wood color however, the ven...

Church Clock Project #3: Raising The Roof

02-22-2011 06:02 AM by William | 4 comments »

This first photo today is one I forgot to put in the last blog. I wanted to show the doors. I really am not quite sure of the significance of this particular design on a church door. It is what is on the pattern though and I think it looks nice. I had debated on changing it to something different, maybe a cross. Maybe I will on the next one, but I decided to leave it alone on this one though. The first order of business today was to add supports for the roof. I decided to use much beefier sup...

Church Clock Project #2: Erecting The Walls

02-21-2011 04:13 AM by William | 7 comments »

Today just started out to be one of those days. I ripped a four foot section of mahogany. Then I planed it down to a quarter inch so I could start laying out the walls of the church. I thought I was doing good. I had planed it all down and cut out three of the smaller walls before I noticed that something just didn’t look right. Upon further inspection, everything I had cut was not square. It wasn’t much, about a half of a degree off. As I’m sure most of you know, a half a d...

A prototype cane to try out.

02-20-2011 08:51 PM by jockmike2 | 13 comments »

As you can see Meilie (mmh) gave me a “Big man’s cane” to try out and to keep. She asked my height and weight and picture of my hand so she knew what size and heft she should make the cane from. It’s an experiment for her, but she hit it on the money, it’s even reversible. What a beautiful piece of art. I’m not sure of the wood types, I think mahogany and cherry but wouldn’t bet my life on it..All I could think of is the bowl I gav...

Church Clock Project #1: Build The Inside First

02-19-2011 05:15 AM by William | 4 comments »

Well it FINALLY happened. I finally got enough caught up on around here and had a good enough health day to start a new project. Until I can order my new plans, I wanted to get started on something else. So here goes.I decided to build a church clock. I’ve only built one of these before. When I did, a lady I know snatched it up and took it home with her before I even had a chance to take some decent photos of it. She was so excited I didn’t have the heart to tell her anything besi...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #15: Lagavulin

02-14-2011 06:14 AM by Don | 8 comments »

I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the completion of a project like this than my favorite 16 year old single malt… Except for maybe my favorite Anejo: Things I learned:- Green and Greene were some amazing designers. I already knew this but I have a much better understanding now.- So is Darrell Peart.- The Hall brothers deserve far more recognition than they get. If you don’t know who the Hall brothers are then read Darrells book.- Measure 3 times, cut once. Twic...

doors for the Bench

02-13-2011 06:39 AM by ScrapArt | 1 comment »

These are the doors. These, as well as two others…. Three Fir and one Mahogany. are now ripped down to uniform sizes. I think I will save the Panels for a Draws on a Future project. I spent 4-hours ripping these Down on an old beat up table saw..(Still have all ten fingers). Just about have enough for the butcher block top. Can not make up my mind on what design to do. I really like the the way you can pu in the wood fillers on the “New Fangled” bench to put in table top tools vices Et...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #14: Ebony Pulls

02-07-2011 04:03 AM by Don | 6 comments »

Ebony pulls are done and mounted. I even got the first coat of finish on them. I almost had to call this blog entry “Scewup #2”. I drilled the holes for the screws to mount the pulls about 1/8” off center. It wasn’t enough to allow the screw to pop through but it was close enough breath a sigh of relief when I noticed it. Here’s one of the pulls installed on a drawer and still a little wet from the wipe on poly: And the jig I used to drill the holes: ...
