Just like the grand walnut tree, this grandfather clock stands tall. This clock was made from nearly 100 board feet of 3/4” black walnut and cut with a scroll saw. Although after all the scroll sawing I would bet 30% of the walnut was cut away. There were 193 separate pieces scrolled with 320 inside cuts. It was finished with tung oil and several coats of lacquer. I didn’t keep track of how much time it took as there were several times I got frustrated and set the project aside for a while. I worked on this off an on for about 11 months. I think it turned out great. It is almost 7’ tall and like the walnut tree should stand the test of time. This will be my entry in the walnut contest. Thanks for checking it out.
