Barrel Lid Clock

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Barrel Lid ClockHi:In keeping with the use of wine barrels for my recent projects, I have constructed and carved a “Wine Barrel Clock”.The clock is made of white oak from a reconditioned wine barrel lid. By reconditioned, I mean that the lid had to be disassembled and prepared for lamination and gluing. After this, the lid had to be levelled on both sides and then reshaped into a true circle, as it had come out of the barrel slightly elliptical.Next, a paper pattern had to be made and transferred onto the outside surface of the barrel lid.Only then could the carving commence.The background areas were “stamped”, or as the English say, “stippled”. The letters were hand carved. I have done thousands of letters over the years, so this part of the project was routine.I chose the scripture passage from Ecclesiastes 3:11 to provoke thought on the contrasting concepts of time and eternity. It is my understanding that “eternity” in not made of an “infinite amount of time” but is actually the “absence of time and all its constrains”. I wonder if Einstein would agree with this sentiment :-)As it says in 2 Peter 3:8 “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.”Something to think about each time I look at this clock.

Leonardo da Vinci wing machine

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Leonardo da Vinci wing machinehttps://youtu.be/rKyKYnCdz7cI built this last summer, its the first project I ever filmed. The wing is all Sapele, with brass and ebony accents. The base is made from rigid foam and rocks from the yard, (I also build diorama's). its fairly large as models go, 32” long, 18” high, 13” wide, and it does move as da Vinci's drawing suggests, although it was a fun figuring it out. I am working on a way to show it flapping , thats on the way….

Rustic Coat rack

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Rustic Coat rackMy oldest daughter is really into the rustic furniture. She commissioned me to build her a repurposed lumber coat rack. This is what I came up with. It is basically 1 X 6 barn wood. Most of it is milled from Bald Cypress that was so abundant here in South Louisiana. I also used 2X10 pine and 4X4 treated lumber for my fittings. The whole thing can be disassembled and reassembled without any tools. In one picture I have it laid out to show assembly methods of one piece inside another. It stands about 68 tall, and I incorporated railroad spikes for the coat hooks. I found the spikes at an old Mom & Pop hardware store for $1 per spike. My daughter really likes it and is in the entry foyer of her house.
