Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Take the time to enjoy the 31 projects and patterns in this book. The editors of ScrollSaw & Crafts Magazine have put together the best of recent publications and show you how to make them. Everything from a gingerbread clock to a Dutch windmill clock to whimsical designs like cat and golf lovers clocks. These great designs and easy to build instructions will keep you busy for months. ...fun and rife with new scrolling ideas that will keep you busy and entertained for some time.

On the cover of Wooden Clocks the book claims to have 31 different plans but a review of the contents reveals only 27
different projects. The discrepancy is due 10 the fact that some chapters have more than one plan based on a common theme. The cover photo is also a bit misleading. It shows a wooden gear clock which is detailed as one of the projects. However the remaining 30 plans are for wooden clocks wilh conventional battery-powered clock mechanisms.

All of the projects in the book have previously appeared in Scrollsaw Woodworking & Crafts magazine and are therefore designed to be made with the scrollsaw. The projects are set out according to the level of skill involved - beginner,
intermediate and 'master'. Many of the clocks are scrollsawn shapes with clock fit-ups inserted into a circular recess. Some patterns are simple while olhers are quite elaborate with a number of separate components to be cut and glued together.
More traditional styles include a simple Shaker Clock (including clock case), Lang Clock (wall clock with pendulum movement) and a miniature Grandfather Clock.

The Keepsake Trinket and Woven Boxes all have a clock in their lid. In each case the box is glued up in layers from scrollsawn components. The ultimate project in the book is of course the Wooden Gear Clock. In addilion to the scale plans, photographs and step-by-step instructions provided with all of the projects, for this clock there are also cross-sections and expoded diagrams of how the wooden mechanism is assembled.

Wooden Clocks has a variety of clocks with a wide appeal, suitable for scrollers looking for patterns with fit-ups as well as clockmakers seeking new challenges.
