I love that tiger maple.Here in chattanooga theres a wood dealer that sells it for the same price has soft maple.The only bad part is that you have to go through all of the soft maple to fine the tiger.Its time...
  2. Grandfather Clock

    First of all, let me preface this posting by saying that this was not my creation. My wife and I were lucky enough to be the recipient of this cherry grandfather clock as a wedding present that was handcrafted by my father and finished by my mother. It's based upon an image of a Nathaniel...
  3. Grandfather clock

    My very first clock project from a few years ago. It came out looking pretty good but…a grandfather clock should never ever be your first clock project. It sounds horrible in that its as quite as a mouse. I like my clocks loud to annoy the kids. I miscalculated the dimensions of the clock...
  4. Balanced Diet ... For the Birds

    I have a couple of granddaughters. It is a long distance relationship. I remember the close, one on one times, I had with my grandfathers and long to be the adult, as much as I am capable of being an adult, with my grandchildren as well. It isn't easy, and the thought of just being one person in...
  5. Little Logger

    Little Logger Thomas the Engine is big stuff with little people. So big, the cost of equipment to supply the desires of children and grandchildren is extraordinary. So when I was able to come upon a Log Loader for my grandson's Thomas the Engine Log Hauling Train Cars, at a used price, I was...
  6. Standing the Test of Time

    Just like the grand walnut tree, this grandfather clock stands tall. This clock was made from nearly 100 board feet of 3/4" black walnut and cut with a scroll saw. Although after all the scroll sawing I would bet 30% of the walnut was cut away. There were 193 separate pieces scrolled with 320...

    This walking cane was made as a gift to my grandfather, so it is not for sale. Welcome Surfers: If you are surfing looking for a special walking cane on the internet, go toward the bottom of this posting where you'll find a list of canes that I have built that are ready to ship immediately...
  8. Oak Tall Case Clock

    Finally finshed the Oak Tall Case Clock featured on the NYW some time ago. I had the case finished but had to wait to purchase the clock works. While Norm tells you what movement to order, he some how forgets to tell you the price :) Once I moved into the new shop, this gave me the motivation...
  9. Mini Grandfather Clock

    ScrollerOnline.com has a neat pattern for a miniature grandfather clock. The light colored decorative scroll sawed pieces are maple. The balance of the clock is walnut. I used a dark walnut stain on the walnut to give the biggest color contrast possible between the light colored maple and the...
  10. Grandfather Curio Clock

    I made 2 of these originally as gifts for our kids and their families. It is made of Oak and is an adaptation of a plan I bought from Popular Woodworking. I have made several more and each is slightly different than the others. If you would like to see how I made it, please visit my site at...
  11. Laramee Logs

    Larramee (Not Lincoln) Logs You know, I kind of still like playing blocks. Maybe woodworking is just an extension of how I liked to play with them as a child. I remember the Erector Set too. Combining the Erector Set and Blocks was so much fun and such a journey through the imagination I...

    Pappaw's #26 (wooden Jack) 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. I found some ancient woodworking stuff, which is...

    Chest of Memories - Grandfather's Tool Chest I've recently been cleaning up some of my old hand tools to stock a tool chest built by my grandfather sometime in the early part of the 20th century. I inherited a number of my grandfather's hand tools in 1974 following his death. When my dad died...

    Grandfather Clock 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...

    I have decided to use some holiday money to get a Grr-Ripper after reading about it in a recent thread. My question is about whether the Grr-ripper duplicates the abilities of the Rockler Thin Rip jig . I have the Rockler jig on backorder right now from an order I placed last month. It was...

    I have a coffee table made by Kincade that has a dull finish (maybe Satin). My wife noticed some light scratches and tried to run them out. Now I have a few shinny spots where she rubbed. Does anyone have any advice to get the spots back down to the flat/dull finish that the rest of the table...
