« Part 1: Walnut Tallcase Clock #1: Part 2 of Walnut Tallcase Clock series Part 3: Walnut Tall case Clock »

Well folks, I have been slow on the clock because of other projects that had a higher priority, some of them were “Honey Do’s”, a week spent on a volunteer project for the local area similar to World Changers, and finishing a large cabinet project. So I’ve been fairly busy.

I also decided to put some carving on the upper part of the hood but I can’t decide on a pattern. I guess I’ll have to “give it a go”!

I did carve a rosette for the swan neck but I didn’t like it so I decided to carve another pattern, one a little simpler. I discovered that my carving skills had kind of vanished since I haven’t done any in a long time (I used to carve rifle stocks). So the carving goes verrryyy slloowwwlllyy!

I’m working on a “Honey Do” right now, a display cabinet with many arched doors and sides, but I think it will be finished in a few weeks, then on to the clock and other projects.

If I live, I will finish it and will post pictures here for all to see. Sorry, life gets in the way.

It is difficult to find time for all the woodworking projects that we want to complete due to “interferences” from daily demands on our time. To tell the truth I would enjoy working in the shop as opposed to mowing the grass but somehow the grass simply doesn’t stop growing to accommodate my wishes. :)

But I can well understand the delay on your clock. Until you can start working on the clock again why not post your progress on the display case. That should be an interesting blog.
