Here’s a brand new clock we’re in the middle of making. The top shows the design, below that are a few snapshots of the first two layers cut. The base layer is a 2 inch thick slab of walnut, next is the maple, the top layer will be tigerwood. That’s the orange top part in the drawing. We will be cutting the tigerwood this afternoon. We’ll bring is along to Maker Faire in whatever stage of completion it happens to be. This one is much bigger than our first clock, measuring about 2ft wide….working our way up to a grandfather clock.
I’ve been hanging around in the Fur section of Dressew a lot lately. Dressew is the best fabric store in Vancouver. It’s huge! They also have the largest selection of fur fabric anywhere in the lower mainland, which attracts a certain…clientelle.
Before you ask, I wasn’t buying any to wear! I’ve started on a few new projects which require vast quanities. The first is Oleg the Yeti:
He’ll stand about 30″ tall.
I’m making a Sasquatch next!
We cut out the fox and raven parts of the pub sign today on the CNC, so I’ll be carving that soon hopefully.
Also, we’ve almost finished the clock – just need to cut out the 3 engraved brass circles and secure the clock part in place.
…has pretty much been the sound track to our lives for the past 4 months. Check out our Flight of the Bumble Bee video here:
This video will be playing in “ContainR” at Maker Faire.
It’s next weekend folks, step right up and get your tickets!
