  • missing material list for dome clock

    hey folks....i just received the dome clock plans from cherrywood.....there is no material list shown as it was on the Roman cathederal clock plans.....matter of fact..the plans seem less specific as to false plates (used to attach various pieces to) through out theb plans....again, quite unlike the cathederal plans.....anybody else whos built this one find this situation.....? theres one place where a note is shown to use cleats or plates...but no drawings as to where.

    Both of those clock plans when I got them had no material list and no assembly instructions. If you have any specific problems, someone here will try to answer your questions, maybe I can even help. The clocks you mention are old patterns. Al Spicers patterns have very accurate cutting lists. Dirk Boleman has good instructions for assembly. Make sure all pieces are cut 90 degrees and do a dry fit first. I use plates inside, and make each clock in 2 sections. It sure is a lot easier to move them if they are not in one piece.
    Have fun and share some pictures with us.

        That sure does not sound good for a company to send out plans like that. I have never heard for the Cherrywood company I'm hoping you didn't mean Cherrytree. Evelyn ordered a precut clock kit from them for me as a Christmas gift to replace the chip carving knifes I got but can not use. I think I would be a bit up set if this gift did not have the proper plans.
