  • 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.

        Thanks Carole and North Wood for the comments, it is nice to have a gift we both and enjoy. At this time I'm not sure what my next project is I got three new scroll saw books for my birthday so it could come from one of those books plus I have 3 people whowould like chess sets made.

          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.

                          Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

                          Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

                          Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
                          Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
