I used white Ash again. Best wood I ever worked with.
You can see from all the different things I have posted here on Lumberjocks I turn all the straight boards into curves before I finish..
I don’t use plans except on some scroll saw things. It does make me feel better if I am the designer also.
I start with one thought and by the time it gets built I have come up with a few changes here and there for another. The tall clock was started after the first one was finished. I buy wood appliques, which they are called but I just call them moldings, then trace around them for a pattern so I can make my own so most all of the white on the taller clock was made by me and a little on the shorter clock. These are all more than twice as thick as the store bought appliques.
They have about ten coats of Lacquer.
