    Nice clock  juryaan  I like the grain pattern in the front panel, I have not got round to making one yet but when I do I will try to find a board that also has a symmetrical attractive pattern

    Hi Guys I have just spent some time looking through the various clock photos , I find it amazing that participants with I assume not a lot of experience and using only hand tools can turn out such fine pieces of work, I think a lot of this must be down to Paul’s excellent teaching methods.  I think back to Paul’s course I attended in Wales, there was a guy in his mid sixties  who said he had not done any wood work since he left school and stated that the only wood working tool he owned was a bow saw for cutting branches off trees was able to make the Shaker Candle box, a wall unit and an oak table with only 6 days tuition

    I agree David, some very talented guys on here, and as you say Paul’s teaching methods has to be a great help. Us older guys have to try and learn quickly, if we want any pleasure out of making these projects, because we don’t twenty years to learn a skill.

    Only being in my mid 20’s I have no reason to learn quickly, I guess 🙂  But what I like the most, is the (mostly) simple selection of tools.  I live in an apartment, and use my second bedroom as my “workshop”.  As such, I only use hand tools (except cordless drills), and a workmate.  I do have a fair selection of power tools (Circular saw, jig saw, 2 routers, miter saw, ROS, biscuit joiner) but to use those I drive up to my parents’ house.  Not ideal,but I enjoy it enough to persevere.

    Clock face came in today and the clock is now finished.  I enjoyed it greatly, both the mistakes and the triumphs, and am looking eagerly forward to further instruction.

    Ok, so Saturday I’m showing the clock to the wife and explaining how I am to go about putting a finish on it.  She looks at me and says, “Can you build two more for Christmas?”.  What can I say but, “Sure!…no problem.”.  Well I pulled it off.  All three clock are complete with finish.  The original is on the left.  The only change that I made was to make the bead a little larger on the subsequent two.  I learned so many things during this project and it was great fun.  I am so glad that I joined this program!

    Here is my finished clock. I added a thermometer and a hydrometer to the clock because I thought they would be useful to have in the shop and also to take up some of the empty space. There are a number of flaws and I’m the only one that will probably notice.
