  • Beginning Clocks

    After viewing these beautiful massive Fretwork clocks, can someone suggest a design to start with?

    I don't want to get in over my head, and end up abandoning it.

    It's all fun

      Hello Terry
      One problem with some of the patterns is that there is little instruction for assembly. If this is your first venture in that area, you might like to check out the Edgewater or some other clock by Dirk Boleman of the It uses 1/4 inch woods for most of it. That is one of the easiest thicknesses to get. I think the base has some 3/8 inch wood in it. It has good instructions for assembly. You can probably stackpile much of it. We prefer the look of solid woods--but we have seen beautifully made plywood clocks as well.
      Have fun with your project.

        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...
