  • Finished the Depot Clock

    I finally finished the clock and it looks great and was a lot of fun. I said I would send some pictures and I will link them to Photobucket.

    I put in the lights and sound and it all works. My wife and I enjoy listening to the train on each hour and showing off the lights to friends.

    I made some changes to the construction to make it easier to wire. I took some pictures of it. Take a look and I am willing to answer any questions and a big thanks for looking. I got the prints from The Art Factory and the lumber from Ocooch Hardwoods, both were great to work with. Rich

    It looks great!! It really is a stunning project especially with the sound and lights.
    The removable roof was a great idea for the wireing. We did one last year as a club project and some of your mods would have made assembly much easier.

          OK, OK, I drooled over Rolf's pictures, and I had to clean the drool off my keyboard over yours... and now I'm crying a little bit ( not really that much) over my credit card. I've had all I can stands, I can't stands no more. I just ordered the whole package.

          Great job Rich, I hope I can come close. Thanks for posting this.... (I think LOL)

              Rolf, Thought you posted the pics from your clubs version. I know someone in the not so distant past did.

                Rich, that clock looks fantastic!
                you should be proud, and great job with all the pictures. you should write up an
                article and document all the pictures and see if a magazine will buy or just publish it?

                    I thank all of you for the great comments. It was a fun project to do. It was challenging but not to difficult. You must have a table saw unless you can cut a very straight line, and at 90 degrees. Ben12 and I have become friends with this project and we plan on meeting each other later on. I am glad the pictures showed a good amount of the construction. If anyone plans on building the clock feel free to ask me any questions. Thanks again RichB

                      Hey Rich

                      One more comment on the train clock. Top notch scrollwork and woodworking. As someone who has made the clock I can appreciate the work that you put into it and the attention to detail shows.

                      Looking forward to meeting you later this summer.

                      Ben

                          My son is getting married and my wife fell in love with a pattern named "Sylvia's wedding cross". Apparently that design was done by a person who is no longer on this forum and it is rather an old one as far as I can tell through searching. From posts I have searched several have made it....

                          Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                          Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                          My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...
