Thanks George, well spotted on the spelling will have to have the dictionary with me next time. PS but I did spell anniversary right LOL
Thank's for all your comments this has given me a big boost, Ron the clock is for my mother inlaws 42nd weeding anniversary, and to Simon the finish is sanded to 400 grit sand and seal and then clear wax was used.
When I put the clock insert in I noticed the minute hand was not working well gutted I emailed Meantime- Design on saturday to inform them and recived a email today from them with a apology and to say they have posted 2 clocks out to me free of charge to compensate now that is first class after sales.
|Thread: Just playing with shapes|
Hi Bill, I'm not rubbing salt in the wound it's people like you and other forum members that give me the Ideas tips and advice to go up the shed and practice and pratice and one day it falls into place and as you can see I aint got the best kit but it got me started on a budget.
I went up the shed today with the idea of making a goblet I couldnt get to grips with it chucked it in the bin spat the dummy out and closed the shed door but I will return.
|Thread: My first clock|
Thanks for your comments, Per I used oak as the main components and mahogany for the spindels, I agree with Bill and Derek on equipment but I started at the bottom so their is only one way and that is up now I got the bug.
