The angled clock project…

Here is Bruce a Guest Writer to my blog and I am having him pick his favorite shows of the Router Workshop then write about what he has experienced while watching the show. Please note that Bruce is also a talented model artist with Goggle’s Sketchup modeling package. As demonstrated with the angled clock graphic in this post. Thanks for sharing Bruce…

Bruce’s Review of Episode 105

bruce_angle_clockHi All Bruce Here;

I just reviewed another episode of the Router Workshop. These guys have the best outlook. They use the “KISS” method the majority of the time which is great for us novice router users. Episode 105 continues where the introductory box joint video left off.

Bob constructs a simple angled clock, using the same 3/8” box joint jig as before. Using (you guessed it), angled box joints and a very simple shop made jig. This time he adds a clock and makes a very distinctive desk or table clock which anyone could use or sell. Bob’s techniques and methods are very well explained and easy to follow. Bob’s setups are so basic and easy to understand and he never uses a tape measure. After watching this video I have every confidence even I could build this.

In the remainder of the show Rick reviews the lesson learned and then demonstrates an easy way to make your own molding for the bottom of a mirror in his case but this same process could be used in many applications that I can think of. Next he demonstrates making your own doweling so that you can match materials you are using in your project. As we are all aware, doweling is available in a limited number of materials and quite often not a consistent diameter. This will definitely come in handy.

Another great video jammed packed with technique and ideas.

    Bob and Rick, I am looking for a two tiered cake dish project and plan. Have anything close?
