  1. Howdy, 1st post, European spy here (don't tell anyone!) I really like shapes of radios like this one: Emerson 38 (1935) yet more pics I have built stuff from wood before, and they tend to look like the cheaper IKEA stuff (even though I designed them :D). I do not have a workshop or machine park handy, so what I did so far was all very minimalistic and built "in place". That in mind: Is bending wood like that difficult? I am thinking about making a similar style case, and I want to put a DIY tube amplifier in there (plus some extra stuff). What type of wood is this even? The last photo, at the bottom of the page, to the top, slightly left of center of the back of the walls, there is a bit more contrast - looks like this is some type of plywood, with the middle part much thicker than the outer ones - or am I seeing things? Now, those sides do curve in yet another dimension - are they just panels that likely were made curved by some sort of subtractive process, and then just glued on inner, flat wood? But maybe I could do without them. The speaker area is a jigsaw job, eh? (I wish I had CNC not good at such precise stuff) All those embellished edges are probably too compliated / require very skilled work, not like just going over with a hand router. I guess I'd make it, if at all, simpler where it needs to, but try to beep the overall look & feel. What do you say?

  3. Ready for the top clear coating then hang it high! Sometimes it looks better without the clear coat but I never know until its too late. I might have to take it down on the dock, lay it flat, drill a hole in the middle of it , install a long dowel, fashion a sail, and let er go! Back up, then I could find one of those real loud fog horns.................
  4. 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 layer of foam. No nails or screws, just glue and slip joints to keep everything in place. Inspired by @steven newman. Except for the paint. I finished the inside as individual pieces them glued it all as one solid box. Cut it down on the bandsaw and some minor flattening with hand plane. (Thanks @p_toad) Dad requested yellow, and some reflective tape as well as this type of hold down. I like the hold downs because you can adjust them for more tension or less as needed with little effort. Buy them in sets of 10 at a time, many uses. No fancy woods, just some scraps and some oil based yellow paint. Should last a long time.
  5. 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 have. Can anyone make recommendations about what has worked for them and what they might advise for me? * (Immediate projects: General home repair carpentry and cabinet making. Longer term, want to build some custom furnishings. There's a plan for a DIY grandfather clock up on the Shopsmith website that I'm salivating over, but that will be a couple of years down the road.)
  6. 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
  7. Made a few of these back in early summer using a 2.5 clock insert.
  8. 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 guy would NOT give up. Anyway, I got a bright light and some magnifier lens and watched everything operate......many times. I did find one thing, the hands were on so tight that I had to use pliers to loosen. After that, it has run 24 hours and doing good. Do you think that the hands being too tight could have caused this? I checked the web and got varied answers. If it keeps running........I'll have to believe that the tightness was the problem.

  10. What is auto beat or dead beat movement in a clock?
  11. 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.
  12. 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 back in the winter without little hands helping so don't touch the hands... Dave, I'm talking to you!?!?!?
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  17. 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.
  18. Want to install glass into an old grandfather clock door but found the door frame was warped,how do I straighten the frame? Thanks

  20. 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.

    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.
