  • Wooden Gear Clock

    Steve Good has out done himself on this pattern. Cut from Hard Maple, Quartersawn White Oak and Bamboo, finished with Semigloss Lacquer.

    No this is not a total wooden clock.

      Sweeeeet, and ya beat me to it DW, mine is in the process of being cut. I also think Steve did one fine job on this pattern. I've had a wooden gear clock on my bucket list for some time, but know my skills are not up to making a working wooden clock, so this one will quench my thirst for the time being. Like the woods you have chosen very much. Way to go!

              Wood Dog. Anyone who can do the work you show on this site could easily make a working wooden clock. Especially the SSW&C MLT-13. Give it a try.

              I was saying the same thing to myself as I originally looked at the plan, then I read someone say he was trying it as a first scrollsaw project. I had no excuse then. If he could do it, then I had better be able to :-) He was shaming me into trying. And lo and behold, it wasn't so hard after all.

                  DW, yours came out great I was playing around and cutting some cogs for Steve's clock also. First ones I ever cut. Will have to recut some over. Have to wait now until my new fd blades arrive for the scroll saw as the band saw blade I have is just too course. Hope mine comes out 1/2 as good
                  A wooden gear clock is also on my bucket list but much practice first

                    wipe on poly and tack cloth
                    by dwssr2
                    Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
                    How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...

                    Don’t forget to carry insurance if you sell a lot. It’s a necessary expense and a good "silent" partner and hope it stays that way.

                    I was afraid some of my puzzles would not pass the test, but they did.. (I have some that I sell that would not (they are from the magazine) so I am not going to make them for sale anymore as I am worried about sales of those.. Maybe the magazine should have a statement of warning of small pieces if...
