I know nothing about scrolling but I know that masterpiece deserves more than 1 comment! That is an amazing piece of work and should be a Top 3 for sure.

I done this clock a while back. You can see mine here if you’d like.What kind of wood did you use?Did you put finish on it? And if so, what kind?When I do clock, I like to scroll out wooden faces for them. They just go better in my opinion than inserts (which can be expensive with shipping). If you plan on doing any future scrolled clocks and would like some patterns for clock faces that can be adapted for various clock, let me know. You can send me a PM with your email address and I can send them to you.

Weedman, nice execution. Shows great dedication and focus. I’ve put in my share of time on my Excalibur scroll saw and I have great respect for the quantity of PIECES you created. Did u save them? One time, just for a rif, I saved all the scraps I created and put them in a clear plastic bag. It made a pretty impressive display. Did u choose solid wood or ply? What kind of finish? Once again, BRAVO! ( Italien for Good Job!)

I like that kind of scrolled face panel work…. I wonder if it’s Germanic in it’s origins, as my wife had a cuckoo clock she got in Germany with that kind of scrolled face look.
Sadly… it broke during a move

Did you use a particular finishing ?
Thanks for sharing
