Grandfather clock

Wow!  I wouldn't call the amount of pictures slacking off.  I think this is a really cool gift idea, I'm sure your dad will really be moved by this.  Hopefully your little guy will own 1 day in the future!

Really some nice work so far, as usual.  This is going to be a really cool gift and the photo album will be a nice plus to the gift.  So you going to give him the photo album before the clock and see how far he gets into the album before figures out what it is?

Cool Shane. Looking good all ready.  When I saw all the cuts on your hand I was hoping you didnt drill yourself.

Thanks, Chet. I hadn't thought of doing that. Might be a good idea.

Good stuff.  Are you following the plans to the tee or are you gonna swap out the ply for hardwood panels?

The cherry on your bench is looking juicy these days.

 

I know you know me enough to know the answer to that :-)

 

All bookmatched panels.

I figured but didn't want to be presumptuous. :)  Good man.

Thanks Mark. I'm always bleeding from somewhere. Could have been a drill, could have been a chisel. Who knows lol

Ya me either normally. I've never built anything out of oak. Not that I can remember anyways. Qswo just seems right for his clock.

I bought the very same spline jig.

 

Spline jig?

I did buy some to see if that's what the wife wanted but, she didn't like it either..  So, probably Cherry..

Beautiful work, Shane! I don't think I'll ever make a clock, but I'll be interested in how you do it. Putting in the clock hardware(clockworks?) seems like it would be pretty intimidating.

In the right pieces QSWO can look amazing.  This clock definitely.  It would look good in walnut, cherry, mahogany, QSWO...but I would love to see that beast in all curly maple with ebony accents.  Right @Llama?  Although it's definitely a craftsman style so QSWO is the correct choice traditionally.

Hey @TIODS, can you hatchet those Tapatalk white spaces? @shaneymack, you don't have to explain every delay. Most of us work more slowly and just thought of you as more human. 

Tapatalk whitespaces? Say whaaaaa?
