  • America's Pride Mantel Clock

    Hello All, I have not posted anything in awhile because it is winter. Although the winter has been very mild here in NJ, it seems the week-ends are always colder than the week-days, so I cannot get any cutting done in my unheated garage. I have managed to sneak a few hours here and there. I am working on a Mantel Clock from Berry Basket called "America's Pride" and here is the base completed. I have used red oak, basswood and mahogny. I have 7+ hours on this and many more to go. Most of it will be done in red oak. As always suggestions and comments are welcome. Thanks.

        Nice looking start on the clock Mark. I have the CD with a lot of those clocks by Rick Longabaugh, just haven't started any. Of course the Belltower was my first "large" clock.

          Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

          will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
