First off, a photographer, I am not. :-D

This is the latest project I have been working on in my shop. It is called The Guardian Angel Wall Clock. I took some liberties with the pattern, as it called for a light colored wood for the overlay work, on a dark colored wood for the main frame. Whenever the pattern was calling for oak, I made it out of walnut…and wherever it was calling for walnut I made it out of oak. All the rest of the details of the pattern I didn’t fuss with. Just wanted to be something different and not ‘out of the box’...
Clock works is a 4 1/2” dial, with an adjustable pendulum and the works itself plays Westminster Chimes with the hours counted off on the hour. Was a fun piece to make, several mitered corners to fit up.

Thank You, and best of luck and enjoyment on your own projects.

Beautifull clock, great patience was involved I’m sure. What kind of scroll saw and more specifically, what blades are your favorite?

Michigan Mark…...Thanks for the comment!

I cut with a Hegner Multimax 22V….most projects I do involve material around a 1/4” thick, and the blades that I use most of the time are a #5R. on this project i used the 5R, but in a precision ground blade. They cut well, and since they are a ground blade, they seem to last longer. If I cut thicker material, I try and use a 7R…reverse tooth blades work well as they don’t splinter out on the tableside of the cut. With the 22V, the speed is variable, so if I cut material thinner than 1/4”, I still like to use the 5R’s, and can just slow the blade speed down.

I love Angels and so did my Mom. I also do scrollwork but not often enough. This piece is outstanding. A lot of pain between the shoulders. Great job and just beautiful.

TriviaSteve—Ask away, I will answer the best I can. I have recently made this pattern again, but using different wood species. Have not posted that project on here yet, as it is a gift, and don’t want recipient to see it prior to Christmas.
