  • 2nd Clock

    Finished this up yesterday.

    My second scrollwork project.

    Pattern is from Wildwood. Body of the clock is Cherry - accent piece is Elm stained with black Analine Dye. Finish is 5 coats of semi-gloss polyurethane buffed with 0000 wool impregnated with wax.

    My wife really likes this piece - not sure it will every see a sale tag (kinda the idea of doing this stuff) ..... I can see she is going to be a problem ......

    I would stick a price tag on it but with a very high price on it and then mark the tag "PIF " and hand it to your wife to keep

        Terrific idea! I had to google PIF and came up with two choices: "Paid in Full" or "Pay it Forward".

        You are a wise man ......

        Thanks,

          It is a beautiful piece. But, I agree with the others "PIF" to wife - no other comments required. You'll get some mileage out of that one.

                Beautiful design and craftsmanship. In spite of being new to scroll sawing you are obviously an accomplished woodworker judging from the beautiful turnings in the one photo. If you continue with the scroll saw, I'm sure we will be seeing more exciting projects from you.

                      Thanks for the kind words about the clock.

                      The reason my wife likes the clock is that she likes how it works with the pottery (hence the picture).

                      These two pieces were made by Lawrence Crank - a Navajo potter in Monument Valley. Several years ago we did our once-in-a-lifetime road trip to the Grand Canyon and one of the many destinations along the way was Monument Valley - quite a place - stunning scenery, lots of movie history and incredible Navajo talent.

                      Thanks,


                      Jay

                              Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                              The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                              I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

                              I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                              I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                              First off how thick is the board you cut?
                              When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                              that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                              for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...
