Here is a simple little clock I made for my wife over a year ago. At the time all I had was a junk scroll saw and a hand-me-down craftsman router. (Non-plunging) I am not sure what took longer…cutting out this simple shape from 1x walnut or hand sanding out the terribly rough cut left by that underpowered scroll saw. But none the less, I finished it. I chose to just apply oil as the finish. As far as I am concerned, walnut needs no help!

It is nothing fancy, but I consider this my first woodworking project.

Beautiful clock James. The beauty is in its simplicity. Well done!

It goes to show that no matter what tools are used it all about the craftsman themself, nice clock.
