  • Workshop & Projects

    Just thought I'd post a few pics of my shop & projects. Please let me know what you think of my work. Always welcome the advice of others.

    I started a new project today. If you look at the table in my shop you'll see two of several clock gears from the Marc Tover wooden geared clock plans. Boy do I have a new appreciation for those who have cut wooden geared clocks, especially those more complicated than this one. But I'm going to conquer this one though it may take some time.

    You've made some lovely pieces, Troy. The photograph frame reminds me of some very attractive frames that Linda Lawson makes.

      Thanks "Gill" sorry about the misspell earlier just wasn't paying attention. Or maybe I am dyslexic. The frame is one of the first pieces that I scrolled. The pics in it are my wife's mother & grandmother. I think the b&w pics give the frame character.

              Troy, that is nice work and a super shop. I am working on my work shop now. I have most of the electrical work done and I am insulating it so I can keep some heat in next winter. Hopefully in a week or two I can have it finished so I can start on the clock. It's driving me nuts not being able to do any projects but it is fun working on my shop anyway. This is what my workshop looked like about a month ago.

                  Yea, it does kind of make it tough to scroll in the snow. Acutally, it was closed in and shingled two days later. Last weekend I got most of the lighting done and I am now getting the dust collector set up and I will finish panelling the walls this week if all goes well.

                      Nice work, but the shop's to clean. Do you have little gremlins that run around behind you with a vacuum cleaner?

                            Cyclones are really nice but small shops like mine (15 amp service) can't handle the power. If I had a cyclone I couldn't turn on any dust-making tools at the same time!

                                This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                                I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                                Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                                How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                                I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                                First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...

                                I think that it important for any business to keep track of what their customers are concerned about. If a business ignores such things, they will suffer in the long run. Ignoring comments in your own forum or not replying to emails is not a good strategy. Good companies are always on the lookout...
