    Hi,

    I’ve been creating some clocks lately to develop my hand tool skills.
    My first clock is made from recycled pine (seems like old growth pine?)
    My second and third clock are made from willow, reclaimed from my uncle his firewood pile (some people would burn everything!)
    Forth clock is made from scraps of oak given to me by an old carpenter.

    All clocks have been finished with shellac and wax.
    It was a good practice and I’m ready for the next step. I’m fully cured from the clock making disease 🙂

    Thanks guys.
    It was a nice experience to work with willow. I found it very easy to work with it, although it’s not very tough. I can defninitely advise you to try it if you have the chance.

    Fantastic work, Bert! I really like the darker tones of the oak one.

    I like the grain of the willow I’ve never heard of this timber before I don’t believe we have it here in Oz but then again at the rate we are going were not going to have much of anything anymore.

    Excellent work bud keep at it.

    I need to make a saw vice I especially like the ones I’ve seen in the gallery any links for the plans?
