Grandfather Clock

08-02-2014 04:07 PM by Jeff | 2 comments »

Two years after I built the stool in the previous blog post I was taking 10th grade wood shop at Marietta High School. We had a full wood shop and an excellent teacher, Mr Spofford. He was serious about having his students build big projects. So, in 10th grade for High School shop class, I built a grandfather clock from plans. It took the entire school year to complete. The clock is built out of solid black walnut. The spindles and the molding are only thing I did not make. All credit goe...

Pappaw's #26 (wooden Jack)

08-28-2009 03:49 AM by kennethw | 10 comments »

While visiting family in Tennessee this week (hence the “pappaw”), I managed to rummage through my late grandfather’s very scary tool shed, which has been pretty much been locked up since he died around 13 years ago.
