    For public entertainment I thought we could post pictures of our progress as we build the Wall Clock project.

    My first pictures is from todays adventure: cutting a housing dadoe.
    This is just practice for the real thing coming up later.
    Lessons learned so far: keep the chisels as sharp as possible, take small bites with the router plane and aim for the sky when pairing out the middle section. My dadoe got a bit deeper than originally intented before it was all flat.

    So for your amusement, here are some pics!

    That is fantastic Dan! The black faced inserts really set it off. It base the look of campaign furniture. Like something in a British headquarters in India back in the day. Really nice.

    It is amazing to me how you can be working along and realize something that Paul said in his video not only makes sense, but it’s an important thing. a little thing like the fact that your Knife has a bevel on both sides and you have to compensate for that when marking. And things like which side to a mark to avoid bruising… I’m enjoying this!

    Hei,
    Here’s my first Paul-Sellers-design completed. It is really so that design matters, I enjoyed every step making it (although I am not satisfied with some details).
    Abachi, 2 layers of shellac, beeswax.
    Second clock is underway, from african mahogany.

    Thank you guys for good words,
    I think that everything is about design and proportions. One thing about what i am not fully satisfied is the beadings. Being lazy I used Veritas plow plane ⅛” instead of tool suggested by Paul. I think it ruined the whole outlook.
    I am wondering why Paul does not publish his journals as a complete high – end workbook about woodworking? This would be highly valuable.
