Topic tags/keywords: mission clock cherry

I thought we might try an little something different.

Did you buy a plan online, make the project, and it came out great? Wanna share that plan with others?

I made this neat little clock from some plans I got on the Shopnotes website. This is how it turned out:

It was made of Cherry, and was a nice little weekend project. If you are beginner woodworker, this would be a great plan for you!

You can get the plan here:

That is a nice looking clock. Sometimes it is satisfying just to get in a quick build and simply complete a project. This looks like it would be a wonderful weekend project especially if you are in the middle of a long project.

Thanks for the link.

I sometimes use plans, especially if the item is complicated. I had good luck with a “Toys and Joys” plan:

Meiselwood Hardware has some very good plans. I use their jump-a-peg game plans all the time and I also have their tablesaw toys plan. they are very easy to follow.

I tinker with making my own plans (in SketchUp) and then modify as mistakes… uhhh design changes dictate. Maybe when I am practiced enough I can go entirely without plans, but for now I like having a starting place, otherwise how will I know when I make ‘design changes’ or when things are actually working properly LOL!
