  • Scroll sawn clock by my 15 year old.

    My teen aged son decided to build a clock last year. I assumed he would make an insert clock model, but instead he showed me the Spring 2011 issue of Scrollsaw magazine.

    With the fearlessness of a teenager, he cut out, sanded, filed and assembled the clock. My assistance was minimal-only helping out with jigs and technique. After about a 15 months, here is the finished product.

    Materials were baltic birch plywood and misc scraps from the shop for supporting parts. The hardest parts was finding a 4' dowel and hunting down the lead shot for the weight. It was cutout on an RBI 220 scrollsaw.

                        WOW that is quite an accomplishment. The wood selections really make the clock pop.

                                Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

                                Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying....

                                will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
