Very impressive Charles, I assume these weren’t your first attempts. You definitely set the bar at another level. I can only hope that my skill level can progress as far. Just wondering about price range and if you sell plans ?
I got interested in these last year, made a career from woodworking, cabinets, interior trim, now retired, looking for new interest. Had never thought about a clock made of wood.
So far I’ve built one of John Randles design, and one Clayton Boyer. Got 3 more Boyer plans for Christmas so I guess I’m now hooked.
Lately been rearranging my shop for smaller projects, setup for much larger, trying to get into a much slower pace.
Been looking real hard at the Excalibur saw, just waiting to get the nerve to pull the trigger there.
Also I’m new to this forum, seem like a lot of nice people. I’m sure I’ll be in here quite q bit, free time at last.

I was going to get the plans from the Clayton Boyer website but it wanted me to join some kind of Visa protection agency and wanted some SSN information. I tried to contact them but I think you have to have outlook or something. Does anybody have an e-mail address for them?

Have your say...
