I can't believe it's been since July since I've posted on this thread ! It's been one heluva summer !!!  So I finally got the shop more or less finished. I got right to the clock since I only had

So i put the chairs on hold because i did not want to sculpt them indoors. The bubinga dust is terrible. Since it's my dads 65th bday this year, I decided to make him a nice gift. I got in touch

Been so busy I forgot to update the thread. The clock is more or less built. Just sanding and finish left which I will do once the new shop is somewhat setup. Beveled the underside on the top

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?

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.

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

 

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

No..  Just not a fan of the Oak even QSWO..

 

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.

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.
