    Very nice David, well done. I especially like the addition of the outside corner bead.

    Thanks Greg I copied the extra bead off a posting one of the other members had done earlier.

    The three finished clocks all together looks superb. They are very inspiring. Thanks for sharing, I have been putting off making a clock because I dont have a plow plane. I think I am going to build one anyway. I will try the saw/chisel method. I agree with Greg on the outside corner bead, it is a nice looking option.

    Nice job David. I like the idea of making multiple items of the same project… even though the work is repetitive your skills improve and the tasks become almost second nature. Whos the lucky one this Christmas? Well Done mate.

    I wish that what I know now, I knew when I was younger.

    Excellent work David. A gift anyone would be proud to receive.

    A clock is next on my build list. I need to find some cheap wood to practice the raised panel. Did you use a number 3 or 4 for the raised panel? I think comprehensive layout lines may really help me with the panel raising bit, so I’m very glad to see your example.

    i'd prefer to make it myself

    Thanks to all for your positive comments, the clocks were for my three sisters I gave them the clocks yesterday they were all very pleased, I think it is appreciated the time and effort that goes in to making them.
    John if you get a chance you should purchase a plough plane I would be lost without mine. I have a Stanley no 50 that I bought for £35 at a tool auction. It works great, I do have an electric router but it is far quicker and easier to produce grooves with the plane.
    Denise. The timber I used is redwood it is just a type of pine I get it rom a local timber merchant and is cheaper than the pine that sold at B&Q I found it was easier to produce the raised panels with the boards held horizontal in my vice ( See photo from post I did above 12th October)Also to mark a few guide lines to work to
    I also found that my block plane worked best across the grain.

    David, I am sure your sisters love the clocks.

    As luck would have it, I finally won an E-Bay auction for a Record 044. It was the fourth time trying to get the highest bid on a Record plow plane. It is coming from England to me in Florida, USA. The shipping was more than I wanted to spend (18£), but I won the 044 for 20£, so it was a good deal over all.

    Now all I have to do is wait for it. I have a tracking number, so I can check it’s progress for the next 10 days. LOL

    Dave,

    Clocks look great and I like the artful swept edge on your workbench from the first photo post.

    That is great John I am sure you will find the clock project a lot easier now you have a plough plane. By the way mine did not look like the photo when I got it I spent a fair time cleaning it up and modifying the box to put it in

    Thanks Joe for your kind words
