  • 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.

          I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

          My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

          None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

          What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
          The bags seem easier on the surface.
          But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

          Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
