    First Timer to Message Boards, not to wood working. I've got a 23X27 workshop that I built just for woodworking.(of course it needs to be bigger) I've been working with wood for about 7 yrs now. I do a lot of lathe work, which I love, but scrolling is right up there with it. Started out with a Delta saw but soon found the saw that works perfect for me, the DeWalt. It is a much better saw & that can be seen by the results of my projects.

    I really like challenging projects, which leads me to a question about the Marc Tovar Clock in the Spring 2007 Issue #26. Just wondering if anyone has completed this project, and if so, is there anything that needs to be adjusted from the patterns? (other than the noted updates to the plans that shows the drill hole sizes)

    Well, thats a little about me. I'll post some pics of some of my projects later on. Looking forward to exchanging ideas, problems and solutions with you all.

    Welcome Troy. Nice size workshop you have. Of course they are never large enough. Haven't tried the clock but someone else should be chiming in soon that has. Have you downloaded the update to the clock? Some parts were missing or rather didn't show up clearly on the original pattern.

        Hi Paul, I have downloaded the updates & it does clarify the drill size for which holes which the original patterns was not clear & also shows the brass tube size cut lengths that was left out of the original. I've allways wanted to build a grandfather clock & still plan to do it someday soon but when I seen this clock in this issue I became interested in it because of the open gears and all.

After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                        I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                        FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                        Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                        I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
