Small Projects #59: Arduino Clock with Temp/Humidity

04-02-2022 11:34 PM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

This is another in a continuing series of weather stations. This one was built around Arduino CPU core and a scrolling red LED display. The entire unit was built with a Lexan front and rear panel and wrapped with walnut and black limba. It does other things too. It does AM/PM or 24 Hr, F or C temp, It chimes on the hour (hours can be set). It has an alarm clock with everything backed up so it doesn’t lose any setting after a power blip,. It has a “coffee pot” relay that c...

Isaac Youngs Clock #3: Pictures Round 2 - Lower Panel Door

01-11-2022 06:18 PM by Tom | 5 comments »

The lower door construction is similar to the glass upper door, but it holds a thin 1/8” pine panel. For the panel, I ripped a 3/4” board with the hand saw and hand planed it down to 1/8” thickness. I got some exercise ripping the panel. Planing thin stock works best if you clamp it on the back end. I made it oversize and cut it down to the door frame. I glued it up with liquid hide glue and clamped it in a frame. ...

Isaac Youngs Clock #1: Starting my Holiday Project

01-03-2022 05:17 PM by Tom | 0 comments »

I like to take some vacation during the holidays and I usually pick out a fun project, often without any need for the item. Such was the case this past holiday season. I purchased a hand tool video by Will Myers to make this clock which looks fairly simple, but is actually a bit tedious and challenging. The video is very well done and gives some history on this shaker clock and provides a complete build with hand tools, including the finishing. They also provide the basic dimensional pl...

Small Projects #39: Zebrawood wall clock with Valentines hearts joints

02-13-2021 02:51 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

SWMBO requested a new wall clock, “Honey can’t you make me a clock?” and the answer is “Yes. Dear.” (I’ve been married a lot of years.) As things worked out all the needed pieces arrived just in time for St. Valentines day. Got a nice shipment of wood in today, some wenge, yellow heart, walnut, cherry and zebrawood. Being well versed in how to try to help marital bliss, I told her to pick and zebrawood it is! This seemed like a great project to use t...

Make Some Time - A Clock Build Blog #1: Inside Out

03-22-2019 02:42 PM by EarlS | 14 comments »

For the 2019 Spring Swap I decided to make a clock based on this picture: Anyone else notice that the lattice on the left side of the frame doesn’t show up on the right side?? The only thing that provided clues to the scale of the clock was the clock face and hands. Fortunately, I was able to find the exact clock face on The smallest size had 3” time ring , with 4-5/8” art on 6” paper which I promptly ordered for the prototype. Other sites I have used inclu...

Boulle Clock Restoration #2: Almost done

03-24-2016 11:53 PM by Patricelejeune | 14 comments »

It has been a while since I posted anything as a friend reminded me couple days ago. So I thought I would do an update on couple projects I have been working on. On an earlier post I had shown the start of a restoration on a Boulle clock. We had restored the top part, since I have been working on the 2 lower elements. I did not took a lot of picture of the restoration of the middle section But I documented better the restoration of the lower section that was partic...

Scott and Jay's "Shop Time Throwdown" #13: Final steps and the REVEAL VIDEO!

04-06-2015 08:00 PM by MyGrowthRings | 0 comments »

Note: Don’t miss the link to the video at the bottom of the post! The final steps happened in a blur over the Easter weekend. The big reveal was pushed back to Easter day, 4/5/15 and because of the reprieve I did what I always do: procrastinate. So while the photos in this post are sparse the payoff will make it worthwhile. Using my Shopsmith bandsaw I resawed a 22” length of 2X4 and freehand drew a capital “I”, “V” and “X”. Drawing isn&...
