Thank you. Spent about 35 hrs on it. Kind of hard to get a decent photo of it as cherry washes out a little under a flash.

Great work and nothing like a hand made that adds a special meaning to the gift. As a scroller myself I can appreciate the effort that went into the clock.

Thank you for the kind words. Yes it was all done on a scroll saw. 20” DeWalt 778. The only thing that wasn’t done on the scroll saw is a cover for the works that is between the fron panel & back. it is 1 7/16” thick. A bit much for Cherry on the saw. I turned the outside diameter and drilled the inside, then spindle sanded the inside to the proper size.Dan

Lacquer, dries fast and can be sanded if need be. I use it on all my scrolled projects.
