This has been long in the planning with many ups and downs.
It is still not finished though her birthday is the 21st of Feb; I will be late with this, but make it as perfect as I can. I don’t have that much free time to blast off a whole weekend at it in the shop so it has been months in the works.
Have had to buy some new tools, big and small and stop myself from buying some others and just use some elbow grease and ingenuity.
The body is maple and the accents purple heart. Learned to never use Titebond III and maple together…black line of death on those joints!!!! The pic is a rough dry fit to keep me motivated. Have to sand, finish and apply the clock details and face. Still working on the back as my last thin purpleheart board warped too badly to use. I will likely go to MDF with a purpleheart veneer to give the same look.
Thanks for looking
