This pattern is from “Advanced Scroll Saw Clocks” by John A. Nelson (1998). I made the first one from red oak plywood as practice (last pic). This final version is cut fro red acrylic with a 1” thick purple heart base. It measures 14” wide, 8” deep and 20” high. I used 4 clear acrylic legs under the base. 390 interior cuts and about 70 hours total time. Acrylic is not a very “forgiving” material so you cannot sand out any hiccups, but you don’t have to finish it like wood! I think I will try his Imperial Tower out of contrasting acrylic next. Thanks for looking!

That’s some serious intricate work! I can’t imagine the time and patience you spent in cutting out the pattern! You nailed it. Beautiful job.
