This is my first woodworking project. Thought it turned out pretty well. All parts are cut out of Baltic Birch using a scroll saw. I do have one more picture to post of the clock 100% complete but I gave the clock to my dad for Christmas ans I forgot to take a picture of it. : \ That one will be posted soon.

Ok. Finished pics posted. Anyone that wants to get the designs of this clock and many more can go to:

Great job, especially for your first wood working project. May I ask the design as it looks like Clayton Boyers’s Simplicity without the round face and weights?

I’m assumiing from here. Just remove the outer (larger) circle.

Excellent link for the ambitious.
