  • Project Finally Completed

    Finished spraying stand with two coats of Deft lacquer clear gloss. Color of stand almost matches clock. In time as the cherry ages the color will darken and should all look the same. Now on to a new project.

      Listen a snack table to display this is not going to cut it so here is the next project.

      You really did a fine job with it. Where are you going to display it or are you selling it???

                  Time involved

                  Theresa,
                  I have an approx. accumulation of almost 250 hours in the clock and stand. Approx 1/3 of the time was required to resaw, plane, sand and glue up the wood. The scroll sawing was the easy part. All the wood was prepared from 5/4 rough sawn wood. I purchase (+/- a few feet) 300 BF of cherry,(100 BF each of) walnut, and maple from a local saw mill in North Carolina and mill my own. This way I can cut material cost by 2/3 on the price of the wood and I get a lot more sq ft of wood to use in clock making or anything else. This way I don't pay for the wood that has been cut away during milling if I bought it at a supplier.
