  • Fretwork Floral Cathedral Clock

    Here is a Berry Basket clock I finished cutting a few weeks back.

    Stands 30 1/2" high and 12" wide.
    22 individual pieces; slot and tab joinery (nicely done as the accent pieces hide all of the slots and tabs).
    Consists of approximately 1693 inside cuts has approximately 317 flowers. Total work hours on this pieces was about 30 hours from start to finish

    Great job, that is really nice

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                    Nicely done! The angel looks good in there. I made one several years ago out of maple, I am sure I never got it done in 30 hours. If you like that style of clock, you might want to try the Victorian Queen, also out of Berry Basket designs. It has a lot of floral work in it ,too. Thank you for sharing pics of your work.

                      Sorry, going to have to slot in another Wow! to the thread.

                      Great work. Not started on even my first project yet as waiting on a few mail deliveries, but you know what? I got something else to aspire to now seeing that great work. Well done sir.

                        Thanks everyone for the great comments. I have inspirations to make the following in the next year or so. Scheherazade Tower, York Minster Cathedral, and the Dome clock. But this will have to be in my spear time when all my other scrolling is done.

                            hello
                            May I ask you who sells that Scheherazade Clock pattern? Another Al Spicer (York Minster) pattern you might want to check out is the Amiens. Al Spicer patterns are super.

                              by Rolf
                              I tend to be a bit scattered when it comes to projects, I get bored and move to something else mid stream. It seems to be getting worse with age,

                              Any way I decided to tune up both of my saws, the EX 16 and my Hawk G4-26. I thought I had the EX perfectly square to the table until I cut...

                              Great news. I know from personal experience getting the vaccine has been a great uplift to me. It gives a new hope that the worst is truly behind us. In the US we did not have a choice in most cases. You got whatever you got. My wife and I both had the Pfizer one and had minimal issues like: arm...

                              Sometime back, there was some discussion about darkening oak. I have used the search and found something about fuming with ammonia, but I think there was another method using vinegar.
                              I have a suspicion it may have been lost in the software change.
                              Any guidance appreciated.
