  • 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

    One of the largest selections of clock patterns is available at Wildwood Designs. They have clock patterns for all skill levels. Take a look at their selection and cut what appeals to you.

      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.

        That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

        I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

        I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

        Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...
