  1. Solaris Wooden Gear Clock

    This is Solaris, a wooden gear clock designed by Clayton Boyer of Hawaii and built by myself. The gears are made of Baltic birch ply while the rest of the clock is constructed of Tiger maple. I used Bull's eye Seal Coat Shellac with Transtint dye to pull out the figure in the wood. The maple I...
  2. Synchronicity Clock

    Synchronicity is an exposed wood gear clock with a novel drive mechanism. Like one of my previous clocks, it uses an electromagnetic pendulum drive. A rare earth magnet is hidden in the back of the pendulum. As it swings past a coil hidden in the clock's back, a battery-powered circuit...
  3. Geared and Hammered Birdhouse

    This birdhouse is constructed of maple on the front and sides with a red oak back. I welded two bolts to the back of a transmission gear out of my Honda push mower. The metal roof was cut out of the back of a retired gas grill. I hammered it on my table saw over the miter slot then sanded the...
  4. Toucan Wood Geared Electromagnetic Clock

    Toucan is a wood geared electromagnetic clock. The plans for the clock are from Clayton Boyer and was built using baltic birch for the gears, pine for the base and the dial, walnut for the hands as well as accents on the dial. I used mesquit for the pendulum pivot, rosewood for the weight and a...
  5. REMEMBER TO BE SAFE!!!

    The comic strip pic thingy should speak for itself…
  6. Hand-Cranked wood model of Scissors Lift Platform

    I like to convert mechanisms to hand-cranked wood models for kids to learn and play with. Before the virus, I would take my 50+ wood models to public shows several times a year and often the adults had as much fun as the kids. The challenge for me on this project was making the wood threads on...
  7. My version of the Screw Advance Box Joint Jig

    I recently completed this "Screw Advance Box Joint Jig" from plans by Matthias Wandel available at www.woodgears.ca. Matthias' plans are excellent and he has some of the most creative projects available - in my opinion. My jig is made mostly with red oak with a little baltic birch for the base...
  8. Door harp #6

    This is the lighthouse at Fort Worden State Park near where I live. I used the windows for the sound holes. I love how the grain in the figured maple background looks like clouds.
  9. SPROCKET DRIVE

    Some time ago I posted this dividing head for my drill press and have been itching to use it . http://lumberjocks.com/projects/96914 Now I finally have a project that is in the development stage and this is coming handy . I set out to make some sprockets and Baltic birch ply looked like the...
  10. Hand-Cranked Worm Gear Driven Large Marble Dispenser

    I made a direct drive version of this and it was ok except you can dispense all 6 marbles in less than 6 seconds…..which is very fast. If I use a worm gear drive, I can slow it down so it takes longer to dispense all 6 marbles. About 4 seconds per marble would be about right, which is 15 RPM...
  11. Figured out how to draw Worm Gear in Sketchup

    I originally posted this completed project on this web site back in 2013 and this is a link to that posting. Back then, I was relatively knew to using Sketchup, and I did not know how to draw the worm gear. I was able to make the gear using this basic process: -at every 90 degrees around the...
  12. Golf Gear Rack

    A storage rack for golf gear that I copied from one made of steel tubing and wire mesh advertised in one of those airplane shopping catalogs.
  13. Kinestrata, a wooden marble machine

    Kinestrata, whose roots translate to "motion layers" was a six month effort. The machine's 390 parts took roughly 400 hours to design and construct, and over 100 more to document. Kinestrata is fully mechanical, weight and escapement driven, contains four unique tracks, operates continuously for...
  14. Serpentine Wood Gear Clock

    I present to you, Serpentine Wood Gear Clock. This is a clock that is designed by Jeffrey Schierenbeck and is offered as either plans with a hardware pack or a complete laser cut kit. A couple years ago, I bought the plans from Jeffrey and had planned on building the clock eventually. Well, two...
  15. Race Fan Cane: NASCAR Inspired Walking Cane, Driver Jimmie Johnson #48 Carved Stick & Knob

    ------------------------------------------- Sorry about the photos being a little fuzzy, I just was cutting it too close to the deadline and rushed the photo set up. This walking cane was commissioned and resides in Wichita, Kansas USA ------------------------------------------ Welcome Web...
  16. Rotating Vise Base. Not a good carving exercise.

    Next in the series, a fairly basic project that started out as an exercise in decorative carving. As you can see there isn't much carving. This vise is one of my all-time favorite ebay purchases and came with an interesting rounding up tool. (Yet another vise mounted tool that is laying on a...
  17. Hand-Operated Wooden Worm Gear Model

    I have made a lot of hand-operated wood models. The book Building Wooden Machines by Bridgewater & Bridgewater has a neat pattern for a worm gear model. To add some color to the model, I used padauk for the 2 bearings and purple heartwood for the crank. I also dyed the pegs on the bearings. The...
  18. First table. Silver Maple top

    This was my first attempt at a table. It was decided not to go with a wood base. I (my wife) decided to go with a more industrial steampunk look for the base. It was for my cousins wedding so we figured it would be the perfect opportunity to work out any kinks before I built anymore. The top is...
  19. Timber Frame all-wood Clock

    I recently finished this clock which was commissioned by a Timber Frame Company in Tennessee. It's constructed with Sapele hardwood and Holly details. This clock will sit on the company boardroom table for clients to see and future clients will be given an option to include a clock such as this...
