using the same pattern. This is a good way to add my personal touches. I made the 4 clocks, all different in appearance but all have the same top like in the picture on the left side. The other clocks are in my pictures . Maple wood, easy to carve but maybe harder on the tools. I got a roman numeral dial off the internet and cut it out with the scroll saw. Making your own face out of wood saves a bunch of bucks. The pendulum bob was a backing plate for a drawer pull I printed out and enlarged, cut out with scroll saw, then put a layer of glue down for some glitter to stick to.. then it all got a few coats of clear lacquer. I used some old pieces to help me draw out the plans. The maple board is a full 1” and the backing board is 3/4” mdo.
