This is another Christmas present I made from a couple of years ago. It is not identical to the plans – there was another feature I did not care for, so I left it out. The clocks were made of 1/4 oak plywood, and the roof was planed and sanded solid oak. The numbers were cut from walnut. I made three clocks (batch cut to save time).

The plan came from Scroll Saw magazine.

I know that pattern. Good job, I like the ‘left’ outs. Much better.

Great scroll work on a fantastic clock! Don’t know what was “left out” but this design is excellent.

Keep up the great work.

Cripes Billy, that is pretty fun. Looks like a whole lot of detail work. Good for you for making three.
