I love it, your stuff always looks like a cnc machine was involved….. I happen to know that’s not the case.

One of the most impressive clocks I’ve ever seen. I’m hoping that you’ll enter the birdhouse contest. What you make with that scroll saw is awesome, and a birdhouse you make would certainly get some votes.

The final clock all together is so impressive! Another great piece, William. You really do a beautiful job on these.

Thank you all so much.
I am planning on entering the birdhouse contest Devann. What I’m planning one will have a lot of scroll work on it, not the kind I normally do though. What I’m building will be done mostly on the table saw, but the scroll saw will come into play when I start adding all the detail. I hope to start on it tomorrow. Be sure to watch for the blog series on it.

On a recent visit to Berlin, Germany, I saw Black Forest Clocks that were breath taking to look at. This piece makes them look like child’s play. Damn, Man!
ANYONE would be honored to own this beauty.

awesome piece of work! This is something that I would like to accomplish when I am more experienced in scrolling! Thanks for the encouragement!

Thank you very much for the compliments.
turtlepan, the clock is very easy to build. You can order many clock designs from Wildwood Designs (one of many, but a good place to start). Most of the clocks look very difficult. They are built in stages though with false plates between the levels. The hardest part of building them is simply having the patience to see them through.
I love doing the clocks because of the wow factor. Most people who see them in person are taken back by them and just can’t fathom building something like this. I don’t mind telling my friends here at Lumberjocks though that they are actually simple.

Also, if you like this clock, check out two other clocks I built, The Worthington Hall Clock, and the Church Clock.
Two other project I’m especially proud of is the Desk Cabinet the Italiante Chandelier.
All these plans for these projects can be found on Wildwood Designs website.
