Eagle Clock

I made this clock with my new carvewright machine the wife bought me. The wood is Primavera with a fruitwood oil finish. So far I am happy with the carvewright machine. Software is straightforward and anyone with basic PC knowledge can move through the programs with ease. Machine setup is minimal and preventative maintenance is easy to perform. The machine is great for hobbyist but carve times are pretty long even for basic signs etc. The biggest draw back for me is the noise level during the carving process. I am going to build a sound box to go around the machine to cut down on noise in the shop. The clock parts were ordered from klockwerks. Cheers/Wudbutcher

Steve, Nice Clock!
How long did it take to do this?
Keep me posted on how well you like the carvewright after you use it for a while.
I would like to see other projects that you use it for.

I also have a carvewright, my husband bought it for me 3 years ago and it is still running strong. I use it to do projects that range from name plaques to an engraved rocking chair. I hope you enjoy using yours as much as I enjoy using my carvewright. One thing – in case nobody has told you is to make sure you clean all the sawdust out of it each time after you use it, I also keep the vacuum hooked up to it while it is running.
