  1. My Dad is a member of a K-9 Search and Rescue team. lately he has been getting more stuff for base camp operations, one of which is coordinating the search on a map. The maps need weights to hold them down. So Dad bought these really nice brass weights. Two magnifiers, one clock and one compass. But they did not offer a box to put them in. Made this box and lined it with foam I had saved from various shipping boxes. Took some time to get it all cut out and supported but it came out pretty good. The middle dividers are a sandwich of one layer of foam, some 5mm plywood and then another la
  2. I'm just getting started in this hobby, but one of the things I know I'll need for the projects* I want to build is a router and router table. My funds are modest, but I'd rather save my pennies for another month or two and get something which will be good for the long haul than just get whatever's on sale at the local big box. I do want quality, but I'm not big into bells and whistles. I generally prefer used and US-made to Cheap Chinese Crap, but good older equipment may be hard to find at a reasonable price and it's possible that I'll want or need some features that the older models may not
  3. I made a clock for my wife. It wouldn’t have been possible without help from Mike, David and others over at the router forum.
  4. Finished these up, both are Steve Good patterns. Oval clocks are about 9" tall mahogany & walnut, mantel clock is 5' *10" walnut, purpleheart & maple. 1" thick with a 2" clock insert.
  5. I know - I haven't been around for a while but I haven't stopped scrolling. It seems life gets in the way of computing. Anyhow, the reason for this thread is to show off my latest "big" clock. It's called Birds of Paradise. It stands about 19" wide and 27" tall. Some 2,014 inside cuts (here is where the "yikes" comes into play) Didn't keep track of time - was afraid to. Now all I have to do is figure out how to package it in order to take it to our shows Oops, forgot - - - - - - still have to upload the pix OK, 'nuff braggin
  6. Made a few of these back in early summer using a 2.5 clock insert.
  7. I've built 2 clocks, a grandmother clock and grandfather clock. The difference is size. The grandmother clock had run for 40 some years and the mechanism was worn, so I replaced it. It is doing fine. The grandfather is another story. It ran fine for 8 years, I oiled it every 2 to 3 years. The last time I did, it had quit chiming. Oiling did not fix the problem. I got a professional and he redid all that i did. It ran great.............for 15 minutes after he left. He came back 4 times and could not get it running longer than 12 hours. He quit and refunded our money. He gave up. A good clock gu

  10. First projects I made in 1999 right after I got my new Dewalt. I am exploring more buttons on the computer I never knew existed or at least I was afraid to push them for maybe the computer would explode or disappear!!! And I am finding pictures I knew went gone gone.
  11. What is auto beat or dead beat movement in a clock?
  12. In 1978 I built a grandmother clock for my wife. It has run all those years and within the last year it has stopped chiming the minutes and some of the hours. OK I know it needs oiled, but it is 40 years old. There is little room to work and frustration builds till it bursts. I put it all back together and now it chimes the hours and minutes perfectly, but it won't run. I am so frustrated I just put it back for another day when my nerves settle down. Maybe have a cold one and chill.
  13. when making a clock should remember when having to change the battery don't mess with the hands..After installing a new battery the hands will automatically go to 12 and stop. Then in a few minutes the hands will start moving again sometimes a full 12 hours without stopping then will stop on the right time. And sometimes they will start again and go directly to the right time..Its good to maybe add a little glue on each corner of the movement for when changing the battery if the movement slips the hands will be off a tad..and like always the movement will advance an hour in spring and fall ba
  14. Here is the finished clock. The wood part was not too bad. The clock mechanism was another story. It would not run. After much trial and error, I discovered a set screw was twice as long as it should be and was rubbing the face where the shaft for the hands went thought. The picture doesn't do the the clock color justice as the cherry finish is much more beautiful in person. I gave it to my daughter for an early Christmas gift and she loves it. The next picture is me with the clock and Christmas projects from the past
  15. I am completing a grandfather clock that was started 15 years ago by a wonderful friend who is 89 years young. He is still a master woodworker and has made many of these clocks from scratch over the years. He is like a father to me and when ever I visited his shop to pick his brain, he always helped me in any way. In the back of his shop stood this big Cherry grandfather clock about 90% complete. It had an inch of dust on and when ever I asked him about it, he never gave me much of an answer. I think I did figure it out. He started this clock for a friend or family member who died. He could no
  16. Someone in one my FB groups posted a picture of a "skeleton" clock. I didn't know what that was until after I did some research. I guess all it means is that a person can see the gears. The one I saw was on a pedestal and it was very nice looking. I need a demo for June and had a little different vision for one. When I do a demo I will make several of an item to make I have it down. So far I've made four of these, no pictures of the first one. It was just to figure out dimensions and diameters. Let me know what you honestly think please. This is the second I did, it is very simple and ver
  17. Well as nice as last week was, this week is the complete opposite. Rainy, damp and miserable. The Patriots woodturners did not let the weather deter them! @Steve Krumanaker has been busy with several projects. He is designing a clock for a demonstration at his woodturnong club. Steve made several different designs and was asking for input as to your favorite. Check out Steve's post and give him some input- Steve is also busy making a whole bunch of honey dipper/jars for a bee farm. He puts his shop made laser to work for the decorative to
  18. Over the years I collected memorialbia from my family and neighbor woodworkers. I have an old hammer from my dad, oil can from a great neighbor, etc. I wanted a wall clock for my shop and decided to make one. Then I decided that I would incorporate all of the things from my past that I had collected. It gets a new addition one in a while from family and I do have to replace the clock batteries, but I like it a-lot
  19. Don't know how many of us make clocks (big and small). I'm always looking for unique plans that I haven't seen before. Stumbled upon this site and marveled at the uniqueness of the clocks. Boyer clocks If anyone has other sites with unique clock patterns would you share them? Thanks, guys, and keep the sawdust flying fred
  20. 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 w
  21. 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 bathro
  22. 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.
