Steve, Just a note of thanks. I have been working on Corel and the word art. I watched your video several times and took notes and have been having a ball doing new stuff. I also cut a few of your patterns this week end for my office desk. Thank you.

I ordered several of these clocks a while back so I thought I should make some clock patterns. They make nice gifts and it gives me a chance to make some more patterns.The clock stands 9" tall and 6 1/2" wide at the base. The front trim is 1/4" maple and the body and base are walnut.
The clock is a 3 1/2" insert that requires a 3 1/4" hole. I used a hole cutter for the insert.
This is an easy pattern to cut. The only challenge might be the words. Use a small blade. I had a selection of jewelers blades that I use to make jigsaw puzzles. I used the #4 jewelers blade for the words.
You can purchase the clock insert form the Clock Parts banner below.

Stephen, a reader from Australia watched the Heart Box video demonstration here at the Scrollsaw Workshop. He fired up Corel Draw and made his lady a nice box pattern.
I think he did a great job. Stephen was nice enough to send the pattern to share with everyone.
Just change the initials and make your own sweetheart box.
Thanks Stephen and keep making those patterns.

The dimensions of the clock are 10 inches long and 5 inches tall.
Here is a mantel clock that is simple to cut. I used 1 inch thick walnut for the body of the clock. I laminated 1/4 inch maple to the back. You want to use the same contrasting wood for the front and back to give it visual balance.
Apply the pattern to the body of the clock and use a hole saw to cut the 3 1/4 inch hole. Then glue the back contrasting wood so the hole is not visible from the back.
After the glue is set cut the pattern at the scroll saw.
After you get the scrolled front fretwork cut insert the clock and glue the fretwork around the clock. This makes sure it is aligned well.
The pattern has an optional crown. I did not choose to cut the crown because my wife did not like it. The crown adds another inch to the height of the clock. Your choice to include it or not.
Hope you have fun with this pattern.
