  1. Shop Clock

    Had a damaged blade that I wanted to reuse somehow and didn't have a clock in the shop so I stenciled and spray canned the blade and made it into a personalized clock that's not so everyday and plain. I'm big on recycling and reusing so this will be one of many re purposed projects I make.
  2. Watches

    I have made several of these for gifts. They are watches made out of left over wood scraps. The straps on these two are cut from blocks of walnut. A bit time consuming, but they make great gifts. The design allows them to hang on a wall, or fold up the strap and it functions as a stand for use...
  3. M5 Clock

    Just finished this new clock design. I don't have plans for it yet, it's all in my head for now. When I become an expert at ACAD-Inventor I'll update. I do plan to write a short "How To" book/guide on this basic design clock. This clock was a commissioned project for a Jeweler who lives in...
  4. Mid Century Modern Clock

    Made this mid century modern clock this weekend from 2 inch thick maple and walnut. The time markings are walnut and Bolivian Rosewood. Finished in natural danish oil. Measures approximately 10 inches high by 6 inches wide. Video in the works.
  5. Wooden clock

    This is a clock I made from a Clayton Boyer design. It is essentially a clock made from plywood parts cut out on the bacdsaw and scroll saw. More than a clock, this is a kinetic sculpture. It does not keep very accurate time losing about 5 minutes per day and sometimes it stops all by itself...
  6. The Little Miss's Christmas Present

    This is only the second thing I've ever built and I found it to be challenging and very rewarding. I started in October and worked on weekends for 9 weeks. It kicked my butt a few times but I prevailed. The wood is Iroko, a.k.a. "Cheap Man's Teak" because it looks similar and has the same...
  7. Wedding box #2

    Spent 1 1/2 hrs tonite on her. Cut all the #0 biscuts for the miters. Glued and clamped. Waited a little for the glue to dry and started cutting the mitered key slots. If you do even just a few small boxes and like this detail- It's worth building the jig! After the keys are cut, just add...
  8. Time keeps on ticking, ticking, ticking...

    The sawdust was flying again this weekend in the workshop. I needed a clock for my office at the daytime gig so I figured that I would make one for myself. I constructed this using some left over walnut and maple. The hands and mechanical part came from a Michael's craft store. It measures 8"...

  10. Writing desk

    Borrowing heavily from the Greene's-and maybe Darrell Peart, I came up with a design for a writing desk to be made from mahogany. The bottom section is pretty much pure G & G, but the top half leans towards the Stickley style, so I added the cloudlift back to tie it together. My wife wanted a...
  11. Bud vase and Pocket watch

    From early beginnings. I made my first few dollars with these bud vased (featured in Wood Magazine in the late 1980's). The pocket watch was made as a christmas gift to my brother inlaw who was obessed with time. The vase is laminated hard maple with walnut and a rosewood cap. The pocket...
  12. Wooden Watch

    So the insert for my watch finally came in today! Here is my completed homemade watch. It is cut from solid red oak, has brad nails for link pins, and is finished with 5 coats of spray gloss polyurethane. To see how I made it, see my semi-tutorial blog. I used 2 large (compared to the other...

  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Greetings and salutations Lumberjocks! I virtually always use brushing lacquer, but I have a 16 oz jar of Furniture Satin Mod-Podge here. A few of the differences I can see between the two is that the Mod-Podge is water based, also works as a glue, is mostly inert so will adhere to most other...

I have an 8×8 space that I can make my own. essentially they like you to make a room or display case out of your space so my wife wants to make it look like a living room with trim and fake wood paneling on the lower half...
