  • 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.
