    I finished the first project of the master classes this weekend. Clock is eastern white pine, with golden pecan stain, shellac and wax. I made the clock a little shorter for the mantle.
    I did bevel edges instead of the raised panel.

    Way to go Marilyn. The clock looks really nice. I especially like the double bead on the edges – really makes it stand out.

    Thanks guys for kind words and encouragement… yeah, that poor man’s beading tool is great…
    @frankj – made my dovetail template to start on boxes… But have to construct 3 garden beds before I can begin. Spring is here and I have to get the garden ready..

    Nice clock the bevels on the top and bottom lighten the look. I understand about the garden, yard work, etc. I have a long list of things to do now that the weather is warming up; I did the raised beds last spring.

    Wow, I like the sharp lines of the detailing. Good job. I tried beading once, didn’t go all that well xD

    @raze599, My 1st attempt with the beading tool didn’t go well until I re-sharpened the head of the screw like in Paul Sellers’ video. Then it really started working for me. I think I can sharpen it a bit more too. I used a screw with a longer smooth shank so that I could increase/decrease the cut from the edge of the wood. That’s how I made the double beads.
    I deepened the grooves with a dovetail saw (14 tpi).
    P.S. I do like your table and your problem solving skills.
