    I think I would wedge the crack apart carefully, work some glue into it and clamp it tight. I bet it almost disappears.

    Just a measurement rambling

    As I look through various woodworking plans, I notice a lot the use of small fractional dimensions. Often calling for pieces in the 16th and 32nds. Is this done just to challenge my eyesight, or...

    Thank you Ron. You post plenty to drool over yourself!

    Mike, I have to say, I love that. Reminds me of something you might see in an old European church. Great finish on the walnut (did you start with Watco medium or dark walnut, by chance?).

    LOL, Mel! I may not have been clear though, the quartz movement does swing the pendulum, but the pendulum does not drive the time. So I can keep the rocking chair untethered for now!

    Thank you all!

    “Vintage” clock

    Finally put the finishing touches on this clock. A few hand drawn plans, a lot of stops, starts, and procrastination. Designing a bit on the fly resulted in quite a few redos and unforeseen needed...

    Hello Mike, another great piece. Enjoyed the build thread. The veneer work, carving and moldings really sets it apart. That walnut burl (or most burls for that matter), can be a bugger, huh?!. I...

    I believe Glenn Bradley posted recently in a build thread using a regular pencil, then go over it with the white art pencil. The pencil lead shows up well through the white. Works for me.
