This was a first try at this clock and it was a comedy of errors but here is how it ended up.

White oak and the %#$@%^ appliqués are walnut.
The pattern was ordered through Shlabaugh & Son.
Thanks for looking,
David

Looks good from here. What was the problem with the appliques?

Hi Earl, I had no problem making the pyramid points, I set the table of a disc sander to 30 degrees and just had to touch my 3/8” stock to shape them. The problem was cutting them off after they were shaped. I had to use my bandsaw and they were flying all over the place. I wised up after a few and cut them almost off and then finished cutting them with a utility knife. I guess I could have used a coping saw now that I think about it. Smooth sailing from now on. Thanks for looking.

David – finding those little pieces after they go flying is half the fun. I cut small pieces for the mosaics on the table saw and generally I have to go looking for at least a few of them every time.

Well, I did learn a lot from making this little clock, and it was very enjoyable.
