A clock I made as my first real scroll saw project for birthday present for my mom. I got the design out of a magazine. I used 1/4” oak for the whole thing.

Thanks. It was my first try at something as intricate, and so much cutting. Learned a lot about blades on this project.

@Jerrells I’m not sure exactly what magazine it was but I think it was “Scroll Saw”. I m out of town for a couple days but when I get home I will go through my library and find it and pass either the info on to you, or if I can get it done right I will forward you the plans.

Looks familiar! Looks good with the light colored dial. Mine is walnut dial on cherry.
Keep on scrollin’ !

As the others have said, from one scroller to another, great job. My first intricate piece taught me alot about blades and speed also.

Really cool, and for the first scroll saw project incredible. I need to quit my job and spend more time in the workshop.

Nice work, I like your choice of woods. I have the same clock hanging in my house. I made it a couple of years ago. I think the plan was in “scrolsaw workshop” magazine before it merged with another woodcrafting mag.

Your first piece???? I was at it for a number of years before I hit that level of proficiency!

Now I like to do inlay work ( see my avatar) i wonder how “our” clock would look with all the holes filled with contrasting wood? HMMMMMM…
