  • Freestanding Fretwork Clock

    Hi, this is my first attempt of fretwork. I love those victorian patterns and so I selected this freestanding fretwork clock pattern from SSWC.
    I don't have the place to stand a machine so I did the whole work manual using a fretsaw. Came out pretty well anyway I think .
    Any critics welcome

    Richard, Welcome to the Forum! That is a beautiful clock you have cut. And without a scroll saw? Amazing!

      Very nice! I don't think I would have the patience to try that with a hand saw.

          You have the right last name. Very nice work, and with a hand saw yet.

                  Thanks friends for your kind words and compliments !
                  Well it was my first project and so a great challenge, took me about 5 hours to finish.
                  But the result was worth the efforts.

                  Thanks

                    Awesome work Richard. Hand sawing is a great skill to have. Thanks for sharing the clock with us.

                        look great richard,i stated my scrolling ,using a hand fret saw like yourself,
                        they are fine for narrow wood,but as the wood gets thicker its harder too get a completly vertical cut,well done on the clock.definetly on my too do list..
                        not doing much
                        and busy doing it

                          thats the problem. I think a thickness of 1/4" is the limit for a hand saw. If it's thicker non vertical edges become more visible and it doesn't look good anymore.

                            Very nicely done Richard, even more so that you did it with a hand fret saw. Impressive!
