Well as the title say's this is my first clock I was going to put a insert into a disc and on a plinth but then I saw Sad sam's album and thought I would copy his design a bit comments most welcomed.

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.
 
Cheer's Paul.

Hello Paul, Just add my congratulations on your first clock to the others.I started with an electric drill mounted in a home made clamp and very rudimentary tools from a car boot sale so don't worry about it. Once the bug bites,you'll look at wood in an entirely different way.I spent some time last week sorting through firewood at one of the sheds and found several suitable logs. As Derek says enjoy it. Cheers Alan T.

Nice Clock Paul. The spindles need to be really accurate for a job like that and they look spot on.
 
You dont say what you will do with it, pride of place in the family home, or a gift. Either way the object of admiringlooks

I don't want to take anything away from Paul's well deserved praise but I have to answer Ron.
A top class lathe would be very nice Ron, if one came my way would you help me carry it down into the cellar.

Nice one Paul. Much more complex and sophisticated than just an insert in a disc, and well worth the extra effort. As they say, from little acorns...
 
How did you decorate the top? Can't quite see from the photos whether it's painted, textured or what.
