    Hi folks.
    I'm an Aussie. Fairly new to scrolling but already started a big project of a clock. Live near Brisbane, Queensland. Ex RAAF (25 year) now semi retired and enjoying every moment. Look forward to talking with you all.
    Cheers.

    Welcome to the group Mark. Which clock plans are you working on?

      Getting better all the time

      Hi Evilbadger. Hopefully there are now photos attached. It's a clock from Scroll Saw Mag and it's coming along rather well. I've spent about 40 hours so far just cutting out and shaping.
      Cheers

        Wooden geared clocks always take time to build but once you get them running you will enjoy them for a long time. I have the plans for the MLT-13 but just have not had time to work on it, but it is on my never ending to-do list.

        Looks like your doing great so far keep us posted on how you are progressing.

              Nice work Mark, coming along beautifully. Don't know if i'd have the patience for such an intricate item but i'm sure the satisfaction will be huge once it's completed. Looks like you have a great workshop setup too. Envious
              Cheers, Kev.

                    Well that seemed to work ok. Heres a pic of my wife that i made recently. She wouldn't be too impressed if she knew that i was posting it up on the web I thought it came out quite well. I'll take a pic of the finished portrait at some stage.

                      Cool Portraits

                      Cool pics Kev.
                      I'm sure your wife won't mind. It's only 800+ members and millions of guests that can see it. LOL.
                      Your a brave man......

                      No.. seriously, they both look great, the conversion is fantastic.
                      Cheers
