    I haven't made it but I have the issue in front of me and it says a 3 and a 1/2 inch clock with a 3" diameter opening ..

    Also says the clocks are avilable from Sloan's ... unless of course you live anywhere cept the US ... grr!!

      Can you tell me if it says I am supposed to blow up the pattern. I have cut it and the diameter is about 11/2 inch

        Did you use the pattern from the magazine page - or from the pattern insert in the magazine?

            I just looked at the downoadable pattern and printed it at 100% - I get a diameter of approx. 1 and 3/4 inch ... but ... when the PDF file first opens it scales to 171% which I would guess (without doing the sums!) would give you the 3" diameter opening mentioned in the magazine ....

            Maybe this is a question that BobD could answer? You could try private messaging him if he isn't looking at this thread.....

              I would suggest you check out a site like www.klockit.com and look at their clock inserts. Check the various sized ones, paying attention to the mounting diameter. There are so many different ones, it might be best to do that. If you cant find one that will fit, check a few other clock parts suppliers like National Artcraft,Schlaubaugh and Sons, Sloans, Wildwood, ect. Good luck. Dale

                Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                Thanks Rolf,
                I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
