    Skeleton Clocks

    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 very basic, I actually kind of like the front view of this one. It is made from a piece of 8/4 walnut as about 1 1/8 thickness is needed to hide the back of the clock. This is a perspective view and it just doesn't work IMO. The brass trim ring looks huge on this one. You probably noticed there is no foot. There isn't a foot on any of these. My vision is for the clock to sit on a high shelf or fireplace mantle and kind of rise out of the surface. This is the next one, it is white oak and walnut. I have always liked the way those two woods look together. IMO, the walnut feature ring is just too small and is hard to see. On all of the clocks it's hard to see the hands from any distance but I think that's the movement itself. Persepective on the walnut and white oak clock, definitely looks better in the front view. This one is a little heavy on the front too. it would be okay on a mantle or high shelf but on a table it would tip over if bumped. This is the last one I've done and the best one I think. It is hickory and walnut. I like the white oak and walnut better but the walnut ring is better on this one I think. For what it's worth, it's the same movement in all three. It just presses into a 2 3/4" diameter hole. You can tell in this one how hard are the hands to see. Perspective on the last one. Let me know what you think, not sure about the look and maybe a foot will be necessary. Steve
  2. 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 tops. Read his post and the comments our turners offered- @Gerald has been busy as well. He recently turned a pecan bowl and with a gorgeous jade inlay. Gerald talks about the process in his post- Although not directly about turning, Gerald posted an informative topic on bearings and their numbering identification system. This data can be useful with any piece of equipment that contains bearings. I must apologize to @Jim from Easy Wood Tools for missing his post on a beautiful Bocote bowl he turned. Jim posted this on our site last week. He sure can make those Easy Wood Tools sing!! Jim claims to be a newbie turner. Hmmm, I wonder.... Member @Gene Howe sent me a link to some interesting jig/hardware for turning basket weave illusions bowls- This image is of a piece made by Bill Boehme. The link- https://www.chefwarekits.com/basket-weave-illusion-wood-burning-carving-tools/basket-weave-ilusion-diy-kit-woodturning-1.html The ChefWare Kits site has lots of great other kits, jigs and hardware. Sometime back we had a discussion about the pros and cons of spindle washers. I found this video discussing their use and the author provides some visual test data. I'll leave you to make up your own mind. I don't anyone who doesn't like a good biscuit. Mike Peace shows us how to turn a wooden biscuit cutter. Might make a nice object for those craft shows this summer. I've had a little time to play at the lathe. I started on a natural edge bowl made from a piece of the flame box elder. I have it turned and am into the sanding phase. I turned it green, to the final thickness (about 3/16", and am keeping it packed in shavings when I'm not working on it. It is drying slowly while I sand and I'm hoping there won't be too much warping. Safe turning

    Time Wall Clock

    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

    Unique Scrolled Clock Plans

    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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

    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!

    Compound problem

    Never tried to put this many together before. I'm having to use maw's kitchen for this chore.
  11. Smallpatch

    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.
  12. Smallpatch

    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.

  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. From the album: Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    Case finished, with components in place, and the bezel glass is installed back home in the door.
  23. 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.
  24. From the album: Yugoslavian Clock Jewelry Case

    The case pre break down. I removed the door, and I also removed the chimes inside.
  25. 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.
