Since taking an amateur interest in woodworking about six months ago, I am always looking for projects. However, the overlap of projects that I am interested in, capable of, and wife pleasing are fairly limited. However, the lady took a look at that grandfather clock and told me to "make it happen", so that is what this series is about.
Let me start with my credentials:
- Clock knowledge (the fact that I am calling it "clock knowledge" is a pretty good indicator)
- Woodworking experience
- Shop furniture
- Porch swing the lots of "character"
- Cutting board which was mis-finished, and cracked before use
So, there you have it. I set out to create a piece of furniture that typically constructed by ornate artists, and is operated by mechanisms developed based on years of experience and extreme precision.
First things first, let's start with the guts...
