This project build turned looking great in the end but during the development from the very beginning was slowly turning into a hassle. First of all my printer doesn’t do multiple page large poster type prints. So during a google search looking for a way to make that possible found a couple of sites that will do that for me in a quick fashion. So the first site I looked into ended up giving my computer a computer virus. Great!, what a way to start this build. Whatever, so I fixed that for the rest of that day. I eventually found and used a different site that worked out, or so I thought. After printing what was needed and cutting boards, gluing up the the patterns I noticed something wasn’t looking right, things just didn’t look proportional. The pattern was off on some pieces by about a half inch and more. So I had to adjust for that. It was a good thing I caught that before doing all the fret work. I used quarts clock battery powered mechanism I found at Michaels craft store.
For the rest of the project things went a lot more smoothly, Thank God. This project build should have only taken about three days ( mostly cutting and dry time for paint and stain ) but took over a month or more do to the fact that construction work ( job ) picked up and I had to work on 4 different houses ( remodeling ) and it was taking up all my time with late nights and weekends.
Anyway it took longer than expected. So without further adieu here is the mantle clock from a pattern I found on pinterest.
Patterns below. You can drag and drop them on to your desk top.
I have always seen jigs being used in most youtube videos from table saws to even chain saws for milling. Almost everything but a scroll saw. So I have been working on another project, coming soon, and needed a circle for the face of it. Now I’m not the greatest at cutting circles free handed so Why not make a custom jig for my saw. Check out the video and see how I built one.
A new and fun project anyone can do. Here I chose to make the iconic Batman logo from the 1960’s because it looked something I would like to make more so than any other up dated version since it has more character to the design. Plus it just looks like fun. Here all you need is 2 pieces of 1/3 one quarter inch wood and the pattern witch you can get here for free, Batman pattern link. Watch the youtube video and fallow along as to see how it’s made.
Here is a great piece of art work to spruce up the home decor for a new apartment or home. This piece has a great Native American theme I thought of while surfing pinterest one day. Inspired by a movie poster and some Native American photographs I put 2 and 2 together in my mind and had this great idea for some new art work. It looks great in my house and I’m sure it would look good in yours too. The colored paper I found online looking up geometric graphic design. I thought to do something a bit different than adding a black background to this piece like you might see with other scroll sawed art work.
If you would like the pattern for this project I have it for sale at my online shop where I also sell audio books, here is the link to this pattern https://gum.co/bearart and for other patterns check out the menu at the top right of this page called patterns 4 sale.
Like most mothers day, people go out and just buy some kind of gift or just a mothers day card for the holiday just as an easy way of showing appreciation. That’s not for me. For the past few mothers days I’ve personally made it a habit of actually creating an idea of something I know she would like and actively making it with my own hands. So for this mothers day I thought to make a vase to hold the flowers I got her and a cursive font of letters spelling out love. I do love my mother and thank her everyday for anything really, little things big or small. So check out this video of the vase and letters I designed for her this mothers day.
Maybe I should start calling some of these projects Woodworker vs. Pinterest or something like that. Whatever, moving on with this weeks project I usually surf google or pinterest for inspiration on woodworking ideas and if I have enough wood and materials for what I can idea I can produce. So while on pinterest I found this beautiful piece of work and went at it. It looks great along with some of my other projects from before, meaning the “dream catchers” projects I did awhile back and you can find here on this site or my youtube channel here Liberty Woodworking
Here is the template I used on pinterest
A very challenging basket to cut out for sure but well worth it. I really need a band saw and table saw in order to do more woodworking videos on a bigger scale than my resent videos. I found a video on youtube from reagenite71 working on a basket just like this one and in later days found the template over on pinterest. Here is a link to my woodworking board
here is the template. Enjoy!
