    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.

    I am reporting that both clocks are done. One goes to my son as a gift to his new apartment, one to my office.

    I really enjoyed making them. And it is really Paul’s well – balanced design with harmonic proportions which gives good outlook.

    Both cases are very nice and the fact you’ve done it all by hand would make many modern day cabinet makers cringe so congratulations.

    The only criticism I would make is the worng choice of insert. It is far too small for a case of this size, but none the less great work and keep at it.

    Well, Mr. Katz was not terribly impressed. But my friends, to whom I gave the clock as a wedding gift, like it a lot.

    I only had to make each component twice. Not so bad for my first piece made entirely with hand tools.

    Well, I take that back. The grooves for the raised panel were done on my router table, as I did not yet have a plow plane with properly-fitting irons.

    A public “thank you” to Paul Sellers for teaching the techniques. Now it’s up to me to develop the skills.

    Good luck with the clock Jesper, if my housing dados turns out as neat and crisp looking as yours I’ll be very happy.
    I had a couple of clock faces arrive in the post today, just got to get the timber now. I’m hoping to make a couple as Christmas presents.

    EDIT: My apologies, I didn’t realise ( until now) that the post I just replied to was written in November 2012, looks like i’m a bit behind the times. Some great looking clocks on this thread.

    Here is my completed clock. I cheated a little using a hollow to finish the bullnose, a scratch stock for the beading, and a fenced rabbet to raise the panel.

    Another wall clock, this time in American black walnut, lightly figured. Hand made moldings and a shellac and paste wax finish.

    Very nice! The moldings are beautiful. Did you use hollows and rounds to make them?

    I love these clocks! I’m going to be making on for a wedding present for a good friend of mine.
