  • 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.

                    No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

                    I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure black and white is easier...

                    I have no idea what the measurements of the 18" table are, I can give measurements of the poly max and the 14"....

                    Just Wondering...

                    Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                    With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                    I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                    Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....
