This is not a very impressive piece, but I have created most of my other pieces with my old Porter Cable scroll saw I bought from Lowe’s. I knew it was on its last leg, so I have been saving up for a new saw. Just so happens that I ordered my new Excalibur saw last Friday and just wanted to make something simple while I waited for the new saw to come in. The girls at the office have said they wanted a clock in their shipping room and I remembered I had a Kathy Wise pattern for a clock. It should have been an easy pattern to make, but of course that’s not the way things turned out. The pattern called for a clock insert of 3 ½ and as it turns out, that size was very difficult to find. I ended up making all of the numbers and the clock face and just bought the clock works. I had about 4 more numbers to cut out and the old saw just gave out. I was able to finish it up with another saw, but it was almost like losing an old friend as many hours I spent behind that old Porter Cable. The new saw is due in tomorrow from Seyco and it is about five times as expensive as my old saw, but I hope it can bring me five times the enjoyment I got out of the old one. We will see, and I just might have to bury my old saw in the back yard as a memorial lol. I might be and idiot for putting any emotions into an inanimate object, but I don’t think I’m the only one.
This piece is made from lace wood, walnut, aspen, curly maple, cherry.
