Guys/Gals – this is my first post ever. After starting to wood work as a teen-ager and then picking it up again after marraige and kids (10 and 12 and they don’t think I”m cool anymore). So I have more free time. I have made a number of pieces (Pie cabinet, apothecary cabinet/side board). I always wanted a grandfather clock for my house. So I went for it. Made of red oak purchased at big box store, it took me about 6 months to complete (in between honey-do projects and taking kids to pool, friends houses, etc). My 12 year old daughter helped me design the corbels using a free hand pattern. Pretty good, huh?
My next project is a Morris Chair. Will try White Oak. Has anyone ever ordered their stock from hardwood to go online website. Prices seem amazing and when I called and emailed with questions they were very helpful and I could tell they share all of our love for the hobby.
