I built Dirk Boelman’s Country Cottage Grandfather Clock and was very impressed with the detailed pattern and instructions. So I tried his Edgewater Clock and was just as happy. Scroll sawed from red oak and walnut, it has 198 pieces, 706 internal cuts and took 90 hours to complete. Last shot show LED lights with colored acrylic which looks pretty sharp at night. Thanks for looking!

What a lot of work and patience.
My wife wants to know who is going to clean it when it gets dusty? LOL

Chris, that is one of the most spectacular pieces I have ever seen.
Congratulations on a wonderful project and thank you for sharing with us.
90 hours, WOW. That’s patience.

Man that’s an amazing clock! I’d say you got off easy with only 90 hours—looks like it should have taken twice that many!

Did the plan come with the LED’s or did you add it yourself, They really make it stand out at night.

Thanks for all the nice comments. I added the LED lights (Amazon on line) and the colored acrylic pieces. The clock with pendulum were part of the plan package. I am sorry Dirk is no longer with us, but there are some great plans on his site. His grandfather clock is a big hit in my home,

Great work on the clock! Is it possible to build it with pin-end scroll saw blades or is it necessary to have pin-less blades. I have been wanting to build a clock like this for a while, but our scroll saw is pin end only and some scroll saw projects require pin-less blades to get into the small scrolls. Great job!
