Newbie - Wooden Works Clocks

I build wooden works clocks using conventional tools as well as with help from CNC routers and am interested in corresponding with others interested in wooden works clock building. My website identifying the processes I use together with a few pics and videos of final clocks is at http://www.woodenworksclocks.com

Wow. What a magnificent site. Not too flashy but still plenty classy.

Very interesting subject matter, and what a refreshing experience to find someone who has taken the time to learn the proper usage of the English language, and the words are actually spelled correctly.

I guess it takes a clockmaker to cover small details like that. Today so many people trash the language, so badly, it's nice to read well-written prose and it's an added bonus when it flows.

I bookmarked your site. It's very interesting reading and very well done. Welcome to the forum Bobby.

P.S. I almost forgot - your clocks are awesome. The Swoopy is mindboggling!

Thanks for welcome

Thanks for the welcoming comments. When I started building clocks about 15 years ago I searched the web, libraries - everywhere I could think of to try to get information sufficient to start on a clock. So the clock website is giving back at least a little for all the help I received by putting a buch of info on clock building in one place.

I went back when I had more time and still didn't get through the whole site and related links. VERY impressive, it is bookmarked and forwarded to a couple people.
There was an old saying when I worked in the construction trades that was used on guys who were being very meticulous in their work. (by others who did not want to take the time to do it right/perfect) "Come on, we are not building a clock here, that is close enough" Odd saying, but I used to hear it quite often. Your clocks and some of the links show what a detail oriented process it is.
Good site, good clock work.

Ditto to you

Hi Daren, Went into your site and looked at some of your work. I tried to do a half decent job on a segmented bowl a while back and finally gave up in frustration. Note you didn't have a problem. Taking the time and having the skills to build clocks is 'a walk in the park' compared to what it takes to do segmented vessel work. So back to you with the compliment.

I second the segmented bowl comment...I've had nuthin' but bad experiences...

I have to say though.....That clock work is spectacular. I would never have the patience for that.... I still have not looked at all the links on your site, but I am very impressed....

Looking forward to your future projects....
