The Hummer



This small mantel clock has a humming bird theme. The clock stands about 10" tall. The insert is a 2 3/4" insert requiring a 2 3/8" hole. It's best to cut the hole with a forstner bit for a good fit. If you need to cut the hole with the scroll saw then understand that I under size the hole in the pattern. It's better to cut the hole too small then sand for a good snug fit.

I used a clock insert from Woodcraft. Item number #142320. Here is the link to the insert I used.

I sometimes get ask why I don't use miter joints or other woodworking joinery in my patterns. This is a good example. All the joints in this clock are simple butt joints. The answer is that I consider this blog a resource for all scrollers. I want my patterns to be within the skill level of everyone that visits here. I try my best to keep the patterns simple and still look nice. From the feed back I get I think that's what most of my readers want.
