  • Scrolling a mini wall clock

    Since the wood is only 1/8 in. thick, do any of you have any tips I should know before sawing and putting my mini clock together. The wood seems awful thin to hold when you glue the sides together.

    Can you post a picture or copy of the pattern? It will help with the reply.

      size all your joints with a 50/50 white glue and water and let dry, then you can use less glue on the final glue up and eliminate most all of the squeeze out plus it will grab and hold better

        Sometimes in situations where there isn't a lot of glue surface, I'll use a gel CA glue (think super glue).

          I agree with Bill, I use CA with an accelerator. Clock assembly can be challenging.

            First off how thick is the board you cut?
            When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
            that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
            for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

            I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

            Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

            Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

            I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
