Made a new clock for my wife’s quilting room. I have to order a movement for it, just waiting for payday…. I did the outer ring twice. The first time I stack cut two sections twice, but I just could not get perfect fit when I tried to glue the sections together, so I cut it as one piece. 332 cut just for that ring in one piece. That is not including the ring that did not work for me….. One hole at a time…

Beautiful work. What wood did you use?

The price of clock inserts make it difficult to produce as a gift. Most inserts are imported. A beautiful clock warrants a fine movement.

Grhunter, I don’t really keep track of my time spent. But this on took me around 15 hours would be my guess. I did it over five days.

Tillir, It is made from 1/4” and 1/8” Baltic Birch Plywood.

Thank you guys for the nice comments.

As a scroller; I think your time estimate is low or else you are a much faster cutter than I!

A lot of very meticulous work.

First class Paul,
It looks like it’s actually been crocheted not scrollsawed.
It’ll fit in prefectly in your wife’s quilting room, top marks sir.

-- Lifes good, Enjoy each new day...... Cheers from "On Top DownUnder" Crowie

WOW Mate, that is special.
Your lady is a lucky one.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
