Wood Gear Clocks

Wood Gear Clocks  are a recent passion of mine. When I first saw these works of art I found it truly amazing that anyone would even attempt this. At the time I was un-aware that wood gear clock making was a centuries old craft that is once again gaining popularity.  These clocks were all I could think about for weeks after I saw them for the first time ... I had to build one for my self! Come to my clock page to share the fun.

Scroll Sawing

Hammer I never thought much about scrolling until I wanted to build a wooden clock. I have a 25 year old saw that was not much fun to use. So I upgraded to a DeWALT 788 and found out how much fun scrolling really is. Check out my scrolling page.

firefoxTurning bowls and hollow forms is what I enjoy most. There is nothing  like the feeling of the cool wet shavings  from a freshly cut log brushing past your arms!  Take a look at my turning page to join in the fun.
