The Patriot clock stands 21" tall. It requires a 2 3/4" clock insert. This project is a little more complicated than the patterns I usually post here at The Scrollsaw Workshop. You will need a couple more tools to finish this clock. You will need a router for the cove detail in the bases. All the pieces need to be cut square at a table saw before the fretwork is cut to insure correct fit.
If you are new to the scroll saw and want to try a project that is a little more challenging then give this clock a try. It is basically just two boxes assembled with simple butt joints. The boxes are then just stacked between bases. The fretwork is not that delicate. I cut the entire project with a Flying Dutchman scroll reverse #5 blade.
I hope you enjoy this pattern. I would love to see some pictures of the finished clocks you make. Good luck and have fun.
