Sueezed in some shop time today! Yay me!

Here are a few shots of the dry fit and glue up on the case.

Even had time to mount the face to a backer board so I had to take a peak.

I couldn’t find where you mentioned where you got the face. I actually drew one up to Dremel into a resawn, bookmatched board:

Hey Tim
Thanks but I saw that post first that’s how I knew to ask about The jig. When you get back maybe you can find the magazine article you found that jig in. This is a very cool clock
Hey Dave thanks for that site.

Ya, I have to agree. A great looking clock. The dovetail jig did a fantastic job too. I think every LJ’er who sees it will favorite it.
