« Part 2: Getting Started... Part 3 of Mantle Clock Project series Part 4: Finished! »

After an enjoyable weekend of work, I was able to get the basic carcase of my mantle clock. I did all the joinery (rabbit joints) with my router table. Simple chamfers decorate the edges of the top and bottom caps as well as provide a shadow line (to hide any slight imperfections) at the top and bottom of the carcase where it is joined to the top and bottom caps. I used a card scraper for the first time on this project for surface prep and I love it. After a good scraping, I was able to start sanding at 220 grit and then 320 grit.
