This Mini-Grandfather Clock is 19 inches tall. It uses a 2 3/4" clock insert with a 2 3/8" diameter mounting hole. The fretwork is beginner level work. The three sections are just box construction. There are four dividers that are all the same size. The box sections are glued to the dividers then stacked and glued. The ornament fretwork pieces are glued to the front of the three sections.
Make sure you study the pictures in the pattern book before you begin. Build the clock in sections then stack the sections together. All the sections and dividers are flush to the back of the clock. Carefully center all the sections.
You can easily build this clock in a weekend. I spent around five hours cutting, assembling and finishing the clock.

This word art pattern is over 26 inches long. It is 6 inches tall at the peak. It is designed in 3 sections to be easy to cut even on small saws. It should be cut from 3/4" thick wood.

Time for my regular apology. I'm sorry I don't answer all my email. I just get more than time allows for me to answer. I read to as many as I can. I try to answer questions from new scrollers first. Right now there are 668 unanswered emails in my inbox. I feel bad I can't be more helpful. I look forward to the day when I retire from my day job. I would love to do this full time.

I'll spend some time this weekend trying to figure out where the incompatibility is and try to work around it for future patterns. In the mean time if you don't wish to use the Adobe reader then the image above is a high resolution JPG that should print pretty well from any imaging software. You will need to adjust the size before you print.
For those of you using the new version of Firefox you can disable the built in PDF viewer. On the about:config page just set the pdfjs.disabled pref to true and it will not use the built in viewer. The about:config page has critical preferences and you can kill Firefox if you make changes you shouldn't. For that reason make these changes at your own risk.If there is enough interest I'll do a short video showing how to disable it.
When the Firefox browser opens the PDF in the built in viewer is also open a dialog box at the top of the browser asking if you wish to use a different viewer. This works but seem to default back to the built in viewer after a few documents are opened.

If you take this or any of my patterns to a commercial printer I want to point out the print permission on the cover. Sometimes printer employees want proof of permission to use before they will print a document. I print this permission on the bottom of each pattern I send out. This should be enough to allow them to make as many prints as you need.
Just a reminder that I have my patterns DVD for sale.
This DVD contains all the patterns from the Scrollsaw Workshop blog from May 12, 2007 to December 2, 2012. There are 1113 pattern books many with multiple patterns.

The game was fun to watch from the opening tip. I have seen too many slow down boring championship games. This one was anything but boring. Both teams took it to each other.

Syracuse and Michigan are both playing great ball right now. Michigan is much better that I though they would be. Syracuse has a great coach and a defense that drives other teams crazy. I have no idea who wins that game but I'll be watching to find out.
I plan to make a few small changes to the blog this weekend. I'm going to take down a couple features. I just can't keep up with everything right now because we are so busy at my day job lately. I have neglected the Custom Pattern Store and fallen so far behind that's it's just not fair to ask people to wait so long for the patterns. I'm going to take it down at least temporarily. If my spare time gets better I may put it back up later. I will try to fill all the current orders but I will not be taking new orders.
I also plan to remove the reader photo section. I don't like the gallery software I use and it needs to be replaced. I will keep all the photos and add them to the new gallery when I find one that is not so buggy. There is also a gallery inside the Community Forum. I may just use that and not have a gallery outside of the forum. Still trying to decide which options are best.
Sorry if the changes cause anyone a problem.

You want to use a nice straight grained wood. Make sure the grain runs the length of the tongs. The tongs and the pivot are cut from separate pieces to keep the grain straight while allowing the splayed design. I used cherry and they feel very durable.
The places where you have to glue the tongs to the pivot need to be flat to allow a good glue surface. Take you time when you cut this area. I cut the long tongs on the table saw and just cut the other pieces on the scroll saw.
After the glue dries blend the pieces together by sanding.
I just used an oil to finish the project.
