Thanks guys for your nice comments. The reason it was lacquered is because a friend who had house extensions gave me some of the Pine roof timber off-cuts which were 180mm x 35mm, three pieces were glued together, the centre one having been reduced to half thickness. Pine wouldn’t have looked right. The clock face diameter is 5”. Anyone contemplating one after I post a pdf should probably start with a Pine one because it’s cheap, easy and cllean to work with. any clock size can be made because the pdf starts with the design criteria, based on the diameter of the clock fit-up. Happy routing.

Beautiful clcok, Harry…

Looking forward to seeing the rest…

Thanks again guys. Joe, Julie sent me details telling me how to post photographs etc, I just haven’t had time to follow up. Regarding slide show/videos, four of my previous projects have in fact been presented this way in a specialist routing forum, and hopefully so will this clock project in due course.
I started this same thread in the clock forum and am surprised that there has been no response, perhaps routers aren’t used there!

Hi Harry, terrific looking clock. Looks great.

Might I suggest that you simply put your PDF on Google documents as a public document, then simply add a link to it from this thread? You only need a google id, which gives you a google email address, and there are several other nice benefits as well.

What forum are you talking about… I couldn’t find a “Clock Forum” here anywhere…

????

I told you how to post pictures too… Just click “IMG” (B I chain-link img) at top of this box… follow nose…

My apologies Joe, it’s obvious that I’ve had a few senior’s moments, the clocks thread was on another forum and I’ve been confusing answers from both forums! Old age is not pleasant. I did mention that TWO members had offered help in posting pdf’s, I apologise for forgetting that you were the other one Joe. The method that Matthew just posted seemed to be easy, I said “seemed to be” because I’ve opened a google account but have no idea where to go from here! Perhaps Matthew will attempt to guide this old man!

I couldn’t fully open the pdf, crafty Google made me use Chrome instead of my usual Firefox!
