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.

GREAT JOB!

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.

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.
