  • La Patience Clocks

    A pair of La Patience clocks I made for my Mother and Aunt. The white wood is ash and the darker wood is Bubinga. I have yet to apply the Deft, but I did apply the Danish Oil.

    The clocks are 21 inches wide, 9 inches deep, and 17 inches high at their highest point. I drilled a hole underneath each spire and three under the church. On the back of the bottom layer I added three Christmas-tree style lights (like you use to light the buildings in a Christmas village) so the whole thing can be lit up. The picture named Clock 1 Front 2 was taken with the light on.

    I'm a weekend scroller, so this project took me about a month to complete. Next up: one or two cuckoo clocks!

      I can see why they're called La Patience clocks. I would never have the patience to tackle anything of this caliber. Excellent work.

          Those clocks are very nice. Your family will love them. I am looking forward to making clocks as well. That is one of the main reasons I started scrollsawing is so I can make clocks. I am mostly practicing on other things so I can develop my skills before I tackle bigger things like the clocks. I want to make the clock mechanism from wood as well and it looks like the next issue of SSW will have some plans for wooden clocks so I am really looking forward to that issue.

              Those clocks look great. I could never have the patience either for all that drilling and threading. Those are some very lucky relatives.

                Beautiful! I can see why you selected your next project. If I had just done those then I'd be ready to go a little Cuckoo too!

                  Thanks for the replies. While making the clocks, I actually corresponded with the guy who created the plans, Ray Baumbach at http://www.scrollworkclocks.com/, and he told me that the clock was actually named for his mother-in-law, who never got to see one built.

                      Thanks for the nice comments. While I was making the clocks, I had reason to correspond with the pattern's author, Ray Baumbach (www.scrollworkclocks.com), who told me that the clock was named for his mother-in-law, who passed away before he could finish one.

                        Absolutely beautiful. You do very accurate work. It is not easy to make mirror images come out looking the same.

                          It is if you stack the wood and cut both sides at the same time :-)

                          During the building of the clock, I had reason to contact the pattern author, Ray Baumbach (http://www.scrollworkclocks.com), and he informed me that the clock was named for his late Mother-In-Law. Apparently she passed before he finished the first one, though, so she didn't get to see it.
