  • American Pride Mantel Clock update

    Hello all,
    Here is my update on the American Pride Mantel clock by Berry Basket. I am done the first 2 stages and I am working on the 3rd stage. I used 1/4" Red oak for most of the project and the doors are stained walnut. The overlay is 1/8" basswood. So far I have 27 hours invested and I have other pieces cut with one more piece to cut and final assembly. I figure about another 3 hours or so to finish. I have dipped all pieces on BLO/mineral spirits and applied 3 coats of spray poly. As always, suggestions and comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.

      The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces.

      Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

      Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

      Now,...

      It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

      Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
