The Holbrook Clock
This project was originally designed by my dad and it is a great jr level project that introduces many woodwork skills.
Steps to breaking out stock (FETWEL)
Calculating the cost of materials
Bandsaw (maybe for wewd design)
2) Wewd time
- The shape and design of the project remains 90% the same for everyone with the exception of wood choice and the patterns you choose when you arrange your wood pieces during the initial glue up stage
- We always try and start with the short ends and skinny pieces that are in the cut off bin or next to the table saw from off cuts
- Do you want an abstract design or something more traditional as a show piece?
2) Wewd time
- If using scrap pieces choose enough wood to be the minimum dimensions as discussed in class during the initial demonstration. This may require full stock breakout procedures from the wood storage area before moving onto the Step 3
3) Jointer (click for jointer safety)
4) Glue-up strips
6) Thickness planer
7) Tablesaw (and maybe the jointer)
- If your face and one edge are not 90 degrees square you may need to pass your piece through the jointer first so the tablesaw fence has a good edge to cut from.
- If your wood design needs specific cuts to center your design you will need to plan out your cuts instead of just one rip on the saw
