Thanks for the favorite. Love your work. Is the Fire clock all routed or is some of it carved?

That toybox rocks! When we have kids if I have a little boy my husband and i would totally make something like that. we’ve always wanted a little pirate of our own :)

Thanks for the compliments.

Ok so the way i did the clock was i cut the white parts of the Maltese cross separately (so each arm of the cross is an individual piece). Then there are actually two layers of the cross that are stacked, you can probably tell. So i basically made two crosses out of maple, one big, one small. They were stacked and glued together. The black areas were actually all cut on the scroll saw and then stained black. They were then attached to the clock with a little bit of wood glue (tightbond) and pin nails using a pin nailer gun. so that’s the basic way of describing what i did. I did that project the long and hard way and i’m trying to forget what a big pain in the butt that project was, LOL.

But if you wanted to attempt to do it your own, i’d cut two layers of crosses on the scroll saw, but i’d make sure each cross is one piece.. Then attach them together, cut the scroll saw design, glue and pin nail. use a Forster bit to drill a hole in the back for the clock mechanism (use a clamp so the clock doesn’t go flying like it did one me). Spray with polyurethane (if you rub the dye will get all over the white wood).

i’m hoping to see someone do the clock sometime. i’ve been thinking about revisiting it. We’ll see, LOL
