  • My Clock

    Hello Everyone
    Well here it is my finished clock for the ready to assembled kit Evelyn gave me for Christmas. The kit is from Cherry Tree and made of pine the movement is a 4 Quarter Westminster. The finish is minwax sedona red with 4 coat of gloss shellac. It was a fairly easy kit to build I did make one change to the kit, the speaker for the clock has a mounting point on the back of the movement box it didn't sound that good, so I drilled a 2" hole on the top covered it with a piece of router mat (the black square in the second photo) I super glued the speaker on the under side. It made a big difference in the sound much deeper and richer. Any and all comments as welcome.

    Beautiful job, Dan. Pretty clever of Evelyn to give you a gift that she could enjoy, too.

          Very nicely done. That's a classic looking clock and I'm sure it looks great in your home.

              Dan - when you said 'pine' I thought 'ok, sure.' But DANG! I would say cherry for sure. It is beautiful! You did a wonderful job. Kudos to Evelyn for making such a good choice of gifts!

                    OK who did it, who did it, who moved my post. I went to off topic to see if there were any new replays and was gone. Thanks everyone for the really nice comments. It was a really fun project to build.

                          New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

                          It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

                          Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

                          I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
                          on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
