no previous part Part 1 of My journey making a Grandfather Clock series Part 2: Frame »

This is kinda what my clock will look like when I am finished with it and the movement and dial are the ones that I have chosen. There was only 3 days of school this week so not a whole lot of work got done on my clock. I have finished planeing the majority of my boards down and I started to cut some of the frame pieces out for the front and side pieces. I want to thank everyone who has looked and commented on my post. This going to be a very exciting and very nervous journey for me. Thanks for going along on the ride with me. I look forward to hearing what you all have to say.

wow that thing is going to be gorgeous, are you going to turn all the spindles and carvings yourself? Looks like alot of work but it should turn out beautiful.

Yes I am going to make spindles similar to that. Some of the carvings I am not adding onto mine but yes I will do them as well.
