  • Another Clock Project

    I challenged our club members to each make a small clock of their choice to be displayed at our annual Wood working show (November 12-13) I was going to use the John Nelson clock but ended up donating it for auction. So I needed to make another quicky.
    This clock was published in the other magazine, I will post the dissue and designers name when I get home.
    I used spanish cedar and curly maple. Turned the feet.
    If I were to do it again I would make a couple of changes like rout a slot for the top and bottom fretwork to make it stronger.

    I like it, Rolf. It has a different look from most clocks--sort of Art Deco rather than Victorian.

    Your cutting is sooooo much better than mine. Watching you work is simply amazing!

              WOW, WOW, WOW...how do you keep all the spacing so exact!?! Luv the Spanish Cedar, may have to try that wood...is it as soft as the other cedars? Do the colors differ (white/red streaks)? Is the dust toxic like auromatic? I know, questions, questions, questions - lol!

              Great Job and thanx for Sharing!!!!

                Thanks for the nice comments.
                Kim the spanish cedar is a bit harder than the other cedar I have used.Th color is very consistent. Absolutly use a good dust mask as it will leave a very bitter taste in your mouth.The clock was designed by Dan and Ray Wilckens CWWC April 09.

                  Thanx Rolf, I appreciate the insight! I luv the coloring and it is on my next order list, especially if it is a little harder as most the cedars dent way too easy!

                    Nice work, as usual Rolf!

                    I really like the contrasting woods you chose. Very distinctive.

                      Linda,
                      Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

                      There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

                      Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

                      In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
