Synopsis

Wooden Clocks 31 Favorite Projects and Patterns by Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Magazine

This book features a wonderful collection of clock projects from the editors of Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts magazine. Learn how to make beautiful time pieces including grandfather clocks and pendulum clocks! It includes projects for all abilities and tastes, from learning to cut pieces and assemble parts to finishing and personalising. The editors of Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts magazine have selected a collection of the most beloved clock projects - from fancy fretwork grandfather clocks to classic pendulum clocks and whimsical desk clocks. This book offers something for everyone - no matter what their level of scrolling expertise. Beginners will learn how to cut their pieces like an expert and assemble clock parts. More advanced crafters will appreciate the section on finishing clocks and personalising special gifts. The articles, that represent the most popular clocks since the inception of Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts in 2000, have been fully updated to reflect current clock part sizes.

Reviews

On the cover of Wooden Clocks the book claims to have 31 different plans but a review of the contents reveals only 27 different projects. The discrepancy is due 10 the fact that some chapters have more than one plan based on a common theme. The cover photo is also a bit misleading. It shows a wooden gear clock which is detailed as one of the projects. However the remaining 30 plans are for wooden clocks wilh conventional battery-powered clock mechanisms. All of the projects in the book have previously appeared in Scrollsaw Woodworking & Crafts magazine and are therefore designed to be made with the scrollsaw. The projects are set out according to the level of skill involved - beginner, intermediate and 'master'. Many of the clocks are scrollsawn shapes with clock fit-ups inserted into a circular recess. Some patterns are simple while olhers are quite elaborate with a number of separate components to be cut and glued together. More traditional styles include a simple Shaker Clock (including clock case), Lang Clock (wall clock with pendulum movement) and a miniature Grandfather Clock. The Keepsake Trinket and Woven Boxes all have a clock in their lid. In each case the box is glued up in layers from scrollsawn components. The ultimate project in the book is of course the Wooden Gear Clock. In addilion to the scale plans, photographs and step-by-step instructions provided with all of the projects, for this clock there are also cross-sections and expoded diagrams of how the wooden mechanism is assembled. Wooden Clocks has a variety of clocks with a wide appeal, suitable for scrollers looking for patterns with fit-ups as well as clockmakers seeking new challenges.
