  • needing a new project...

    I've got it narrowed down to 4 or 5...
    #1. taking on the clock in the resent issue of SSW...
    #2. taking on the miniature grandfather clock in issue #25...
    #3. the family tree photo frame in issue #24...
    #4. the F-14 swingwing puzzle also in issue #24...

    has anyone here tried making one of those backhoe, excavator or tracktor that Cheey tree has to offer?
    between the plans, part kits and wood that would cost a few $$
    and are those scroll saw type projects?

    since I really haven't made up my mind I'm open for suggestions...
    I want to do something different...

        Hey Trout,

        I made the minature Grandfather Clock from issue #25 (see my gallery) and I was quite satisfied with the results. I couldn't find the clock insert called for in the article so I had to make a new piece with a smaller hole for the clock.

          Steebar sells a 60mm clock insert that will fit...

          ANother option if you need to make a smaller insert fit a hole is to wrap masking tape around the insert until it is the proper size!

          I'm planning to make two of them for Christmas 2007 (getting started now becaue my wife complains when I wait until the last minute!!!)

            Trout, do all of them. I would like to see what they all look like. Really I would like to see the clock with the gears and the F-14.

              some mighty fine work there, love the garage and the cabin, the detail is truly amazing, could you tell me roughly what scale it is in, the miniatures i make are 1/12th scale, 1inch to the foot.
              great stuff..

                    My God man! Those are incredible... I was going to ask you if you might want a copy of the plans for any of my wooden locks but after seeing the cabin and garage, you'd just laugh at the lock plans. Fantastic... But you did miss one detail in the garage... most of the 57's I know of have a small oil spot on the floor by the rear seal...

                      I know I've posted this before..

                      but I like to show them off anytime that I can...
                      Steve your miniature furniture is really nice too and when you showed us a couple of your pieces awhile back I just wanted to jump in and show mine too..
                      I just so happen to see your site listed in your signature this morning and checked it out...they are both 1/12 scale...

                      Hey Pop, do you really have patterns for locks?

                      thanks for looking...again...

                        I have both books done by Tim Deitrich that show how to make working locks. They're everything from padlocks to screw locks to antique lever locks. Most of them were quite large (10 x 10 and a little smaller). I redid the plans to make them a little more handy for small fingers because i made them for my grandson's. Mine are usually 1/2 size or around 5 x 5 inches. The plans even use wood for the inside springs and tumblers. You said you wanted something different... I posted some of my locks on the bragging page when I first joined the group in December. Have a look and tell me what you think. The books are worthwhile to have too. I believe someone said they saw them on the Fox Chapel site somewhere.

                          Everyone... I'm really sorry if by trying to be over zealous in helping with the hobby, I may have stepped over the line on my last post. Believe me it was not meant to offend or get myself 'black listed', it was only meant as a means of sharing the hobby and my fervor of it. I promise I'll be more careful in the future. Thanks for the "heads up" by a regular contributor. I have since editied my post to reflect a better path.
