Please tell me that some of you have those unfinished projects…..I beg you…tell me I am not alone!
I always wanted to make one, an exercise in patience and delicacy, this on an Emcostar lathe by the way, with handmade chisels (yes, I make a lot of my own tools…never have guessed huh?) The second picture shows one of the four legs 80% completed and the third shows the pattern chisels I shaped to do pawn repetition. This set haunts me among the millions of unfinished projects….and then there’s that wooden clock to build..the one I design myself…wooden everything including my cranium. I even built a precision clockmakers gearcutter to do it….my wife, beloved woman, asked me “So when are you going to build the clock?” I tapped the left side of my head in a wise manner…..It is already built in here. Suffice to say the lady adores me and puts up with my whimsical ways…
The materials? African blackwood, Hippo ivory, Indian Rosewood legs. No human flesh.
