  • Gaurdian Angels clock and Gingerbread clock.

    I finished the Angel clock on 9-11-2011. It is made of quarter sawn red oak aspen and walnut. It was designed by Dirk Boelman of The Art Factory. The Gingerbread clock is made of 3/16" walnut harvested from my property and 1/16" maple. The Gingerbread clock is designed by John Nelson, and the dial is by Sue Mey. I have these on Etsy.com under Merleswoodworks. along with some other projects.

    Nice job Merle. We enjoy seeing the projects that other people complete. It always seems to give us ideas about the types of wood or finishes to use. I like the idea that you use patterns from different artists in one project.
    Thank you for sharing.

              Excellent work! Man you must have the patience of a rock. I would not be able to do those as I do not have the patience for having so many starts and stops. Thanks for sharing them with us.

                  If stained do you do it before glueing or after also how do make sure all the small fretwork (Small holes scrolled out) pieces get stained? I did some slays back around Christmas and the only way I could get stain to the inside cuts was to dip the project, but something at this size I don't know how someone would dip it.

                    Merle,

                    Excellent job on the clocks. They look great! I really like your selection of contrasting woods.

                      Staining larger 3 dimensional projects like these clocks is difficult. You can stain the pieces before assembly, but you have to be aware that stain will prevent glue joints from achieving the ultimate bond. On some pieces you may be able to get away with it, but glue failure is a risk I wouldn't want to take with a large clock. You could mask the mating glue surfaces before staining, but this can be very tedious and time consuming for complex assemblies. For these reasons, a lot of folks will use the natural color of the various wood species to provide the desired color and contrast, rather than stain the piece. It's a personal choice.

                          Thanks again everyone, and thank you Bill for explaining the stain situation. I know I didn't mention staining any thing.
