Well I have been real busy this week working on my clock and I have got alot accomplished. I have made the majority of the outside frame pieces, the 2 panel middle sections that divide the 3 sections, I gluded up post so I can start to make the turnings and carvings on the outside corners and i made the design of the panel section so now I can cut them out on the panels that seperates the three sections. The frame pieces were consturcted by useing some wood dowels and glue. I thought it would be hard to line them up but all I did was use a DOWEL-IT jig and they came out pretty good. I then glued the side frames and the front frames togehter and then screwed them together. Once I put the turnings on you will not see the screws. if you look at the pictures you will see what the three sections will look like I made a template out of birch plywood first. The two 3/4 in panels will be placed in between the bottom and the base board, the bottom and middle sections and it will seperate the middle and top sections. The bottom panel will hang out pass the top one by 1in all the way around except on the backside this will give it a stair step effect. (I HOPE) Once I have them all cut out I will use a router and make a design around the top sides and then glue the 2 panels together. I am hoping that it will turn out looking like a moulding around the sections. Sofar I am very happy with it! Thanks for the wonderful comments and I hope you all keep looking at my blog.
