This design from Dirk Boelman has been around quite awhile. I decided to go outside my comfort zone and give it a try. I am glad I did! Mostly I do scroll work with small intricate parts…and this was a change of pace. 102 hours over 6 weeks, 230 pieces, 304 interior cuts and a whole lot of fun. I kept price of my costs (wood, pattern, clock parts, etc.) and was a little shocked at how much I spent! (cannot post it here…if the wife sees it I may be shot!) I would highly recommend Dirk’s patterns. This one was very detailed, with 85 steps, helpful hints, and very easy to follow. I am looking forward to making some of his other designs. Thanks for looking!
