  1. 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 not finish it or talk about it because of the hurt he felt losing them. When I visited him this summer, he gave me the clock and parts. Now the problem, he had made the bottom molding, and could only find one of the top moldings. I went to the internet to see about 5 videos to find out how to make them. Then I had to plane down some aged Cherry to make the pieces. I only had enough to make the three pieces I needed. I better not screw up. I managed to get the table saw set up and cut the curves OK. Boy I didn't realize how much sanding I had in store. By the way, I priced a 8 ft piece of crown molding at $185 at a molding store. That is why I tried myself. I had the biggest problem figuring out the miter angles and made the first cut wrong. I still had an inch to play with and still couldn't figure what I was doing wrong. I could not afford to make any more mistakes. I watched the videos again..............and again. I was sure I had it right and did another cut..................whew it was right. I did take most of the day to get it all done and they don't look like the bottom molding at all, but only a real woodworker will know. I thought at first I would stain the whole thing when I get it done because my pieces are much lighter that the aged wood in the rest of the clock. I change my mind and will let that light wood be a tribute to him. I have made many things in my life, but this one is for me.

    Built Up Crown Molding

    From the album: Old English Plate Shelf

    The crown is built up, by using traditional methods of building crown, just as it was done the old days, they did not have power nor molding knives, so just as they did, we did, by shaping each facet of the crown as an independent piece, then applying them on top of each other.
