  1. If you are thinking about building a grandfather clock I built a grandfather clock from a kit from Emperor Clock in the 70s for my wife. I had few tools and little space, so a kit was the only way. I built one from scratch about 10 years ago for my daughter. Both clocks require a yearly cleaning/lubrication. Moving one is also a task. You must remove weights, pendulum and secure everything else. After you move the clock to do anything at all, you must level it so that the pendulum has balanced travel. All weights do not weigh the same and you must be sure you put the proper weight in where it belongs. When I see a clock in someone's home, it is usually not running, due to lack of attention. It costs to have them cleaned and cared for. Now that I am older and have problems with my hands, this maintenance is twice as difficult. Big hands in small places don't work well. Of course a dropped tiny piece always goes to the most difficult location. The older clock is worn and does not chime properly. I'm thinking that it will stay that way
  2. Now I want to draw out something small to carve around the edges or not? Got to keep it in prospective... what ever that means. This is new and different to me so the brain feelers are out there? Fred, a regular scroll saw can't do this so the reason for the cnc in front of it.
  3. I'm getting close to the finishing stage for a walnut mantle clock I've been working on, and I'm looking for suggestions for an appropriate finish. The clock will be on a shelf in the bathroom, and so will be exposed to the humidity coming from the shower. Would danish oil be a good finish, or should I go with a poly? Also thinking of a seal coat of shellac, followed by several coats of satin poly. The shellac would probably be from a rattle can, and the poly would be wipe-on. The clock shouldn't be subject to too much physical wear and tear, so I am just mainly concerned about the bathroom environment.
  4. So this one is 30" x 20". Way too big for the 20" scroll saw. Its in lots of pieces right now..Next step, take the pattern off and draw a few lines on the wood. Then I have this funny little box I invented and to get all these pieces carved just right, I open the door of the little box, say a few secret words, throw all the pieces in and shut the door, turn off the lights and go in the house. Now the last time I think I must have said something I wasn't supposed to say and the poopie gods must have shutdown for the night. Anyway tomorrow is a new day... The pattern was old and some of the wood was missing and I added some of my own thoughts and extended some pieces like I know what I'm doing cause the other night I dreamed I duz. Tomorrow wife starts setting up for her yearly show so these pieces will stay in that little box at least until Monday.
  5. Compound problem

    Never tried to put this many together before. I'm having to use maw's kitchen for this chore.
  6. New project 25" tall

    My scroll saw has a clearance of 20" and this pattern is 25" long. Wasn't easy and no I didn't use a spiral blade. Now I got to make the one on the right look like the one on the left.. This might take a few days, weeks or maybe months. Oh by the way, wife does not have any real bad stuff , which we thought she might have, but the MRI showed 2 busted disk, the third and the forth, what ever that means!! So I went back to work in the shop for a few days. The next appointment for her is the 25th. Maybe operation or a few guided shots with the camera. Amazing what they have learned. Oh, I have already changed some of the stuff from the picture. It looks like there were two pieces missing so I just guessed..That's good about carving pieces for no one can say that ain't right? Hey we even celebrated the better news we got from the doctor by stopping at Dairy Queen on the way home!
  7. I thought I had it all ruffed in

    The bottom piece was the last one done. Then after closer inspection, it was done but on the wrong side. See the two holes in the two pieces. They line up and a screw goes in from the bottom. I knew about an hour ago it was time to quit and go eat. At least I can still carve the other side.. Can't win em all.
  8. Door Frame Straightening

    Want to install glass into an old grandfather clock door but found the door frame was warped,how do I straighten the frame? Thanks
  9. Its still gonna show

    My bo-bo is still going to show but hey if I wanted to be perfect I would have run for President...or a dog catcher!
  10. Got the outside cut out today

    Cutting a full 1" maple and 3/8' Baltic Birch at the same time is hard to hold that much weight and get the blade to follow the line in a good smooth motion.... Every time I would look up at the blade it was leaning one way or the other plus the blade burns the wood when it gets in a bind like that.... I will now remove the 3/8" backer board to cut the carvings away from the interior. Then the easy part begins....... oh sure.

  13. From the album Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    The drawers I made with cherry and matched the grain so it had a wavy appearance in the grain with the different shades of color.
  14. From the album Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    A side shot of the case. The little door in upper side of the case was so you could reach in and set adjust the gears when the clock was functional.
  15. From the album Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    The back of the case is also black velvet. I saved the original clock makers mark (tag) and re-applied it to the back of the case, you can see the slender silver tag at the upper third of the case against the back. Pretty cool I thought.
  16. From the album Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    The drawers are outfitted with home made ring slots. I cut a piece of poplar to size, then grooved it, then applied some black velvet material.
  17. From the album Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    The hangers for the necklaces are antique cut nails, nothing fancy, I just pre-drilled and set the nails in place with a dab of epoxy. I thought it was a nice idea, and simple. I like simple.
  18. From the album Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    Case finished, with components in place, and the bezel glass is installed back home in the door.
  19. From the album Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    The case finished. Before I built in the components I simply used #0000 steel wool on the entire piece, then rub it out with a mix of 1 part BLO, 1 part varnish, and 1 part mineral spirits. The natural patina was restored beautifully with just that process alone, I then waxed the case. I then proceeded to install the components I made for the inside of the case.
  20. From the album Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    The case pre break down. I removed the door, and I also removed the chimes inside.
  21. From the album Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    I took the case completely apart since it was pretty loose at the joints, and just rickety all around.
  22. From the album Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    This is how the case was presented to me, but before this image was shot I took the very fragile rounded bezel glass out and put it away for very safe keeping, this piece of glass is irreplaceable, since the glass is not only round, but convex in the form as well!
  23. desk clock

    A couple of years ago I made a desk clock. I used different woods, layered and cut. Then glued the different pieces together. It is about 6 inches wide and I chose not to put numbers on to give it a clean look. It still sets on my son-in-laws desk, still running good
  24. View File Workbench Magazine 1962 Jan-Feb Grandfather Clock This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use. This scan has a wonderful grand father clock schematic and text instructions. These old Workbench Magazine's were fairly light on the detail, but with some prior knowledge and experience you can use this plan as a great jumping off point to build a grandfather clock. There is also a nice little Picture Frame Clock plan included with this scanning. Only the two clocks are included in this scanning, not the entire magazine. Enjoy!
