So… I realized that some of the slight design modifications I made to the clock plans now mean that (once finished) you won’t be able to set the clock or change the battery! :) Gotta rethink some things. The original plans call for butt hinges mounted to the side of the clock case (on the outside). Instead, I’m going to use some rear pivot hinges I found at Lee Valley. They’ll be totally hidden, and they mount (mortise free) to the back of the doors with pins...

This is our starting point for the line that we draw to start shaping. We use a pencil compass for our scribing lines. The line has to stay level / perpe...
It has been awhile since I have updated the progress on some of our projects. Here is the limb and base, they are both sanded. The limb is ready to be scribe fitted to the base.
