I'm re-installing some redwood lattice panels that I made 25 years ago but the quarter round stop stock was getting pretty ratty and wasn't redwood. I just ran 162 feet of clear, all heart (CAH) redwood 5/8" quarter round to make new stops. What is on the right is all the drop that was left including the setup sticks. It worked out pretty good.

Closet modules. Still painting, ugh!
Okay, this thread was "Post what your building" right?

I've been plugging away at this one for a few weeks now as time permits. Pretty close to calling it complete. Needs final finish, cutting the top loose, and adding hinges and a liner. It will eventually live in my backpack to carry headphones. It is intended as an experimental piece for some firsts for me; lock miter joints, spraying a lacquer finish and toner, resawing the thin stock, the way the top/bottom are installed in a dado but still flush with the top/bottom, barrel hinges, and a few others. As a learning piece, there are some things I will do better next time, but still happy with the overall result. It is Ambrosia Maple through and through using a Mohawk toner to color the top panel.

Chris C. Thanks for starting this thread! Seems popular and has the potential to be a "sticky" one. Please PM me. Tried to send one to you, but no joy.

Google it. It is a boat building technique I learned last year at Marc Adams Woodworking School… the best on the planet.
Using 1/8 mdf, cut the number of sides you want using whatever pattern you want.
Then stitch the sides together using 18 or 23 gauge wire.
Then using epoxy, coat the inside to make it stable. Mix a peanut butter using wood flour and epoxy and wedge it along the seems. Let it stand for 24 hours.
Then, cut and remove the wires, sand the edges down, and you have the form. Then veneer it.
Lots of learning steps. David Orth taught the class.

A reproduction of a John Townsend tall case clock originally built in 1765, the original clock lives in the Met in NYC. It's one of the very few pieces that have been signed by John Townsend himself.

The clock is constructed from Mahogany as the primary and Poplar as the secondary. I modeled the clock in Sketchup using photo's from the Met and some photo's I took during a visit to the Met. It is easily the hardest piece I have every built.

It's not the best picture I have ever taken, the clock is so tall (98 1/4"), invariably I am always taking pictures of the lights in the shop because of the height. The clock currently has a dummy dial and movement, I think (?) I have a well known clock maker building a 18th century movement and brass dial for this case.
