Mantle Clock Scroll Saw Pattern.

Click to Enlarge
Download the Pattern Below

This clock requires a clock insert that is 3 3/4" in diameter with a 2 3/8" or 2 5/16" mounting hole. 
A 2 7/8" clock insert should work as well. The clock stands about 9" tall. 

I get my clock inserts from www.bearwood.com. Affiliate Link.

All the parts are 1/4" thick with the exception of four small 3/4" thick glue blocks. The glue blocks just add more glue surface to help hold the top and bottom. Most of the other parts are slot and tab construction.


I get in a Rut Sometimes: 

I get up almost every morning and start thinking of pattern ideas. I think it is obvious to most folks that I enjoy coming up with something new and making a pattern that I can share. I have all kinds of tricks and methods for coming up with ideas. Sometimes none of those tricks work and I draw a blank.

When that happens I fall back on obvious pattern ideas. During the holiday season, I can always do a holiday-themed pattern. An ornament or winter scene is easy but when I get in a rut I fall back on these ideas too often. That is where I have been lately. Nine of the last twelve patterns have been either Christmas or Halloween. 

Don't get me wrong. I like doing holiday patterns but I don't want to overuse the theme. I had a gentle reminder today from a subscriber who he would like to see some different types of patterns. I was glad he took the time to write because it made me sit and look at the trends. 

I will continue to do holiday patterns but I will do my best to slow them down a little. I know that many of you feel the same way as the reader who wrote. In fact, I feel the same way also. 

Personalized Christmas Ornament Patterns are ready to order:

I am ready to start taking Personalized Christmas Ornament Pattern orders.

I can do first or last names but remember that more than ten letters will be more difficult to cut.

The order form will take up to 20 names for people and 5 names for pets. If you need more than 20/5 then start a second order.

You will not pay until you have the patterns and are 100% happy with them. There will be an invoice sent with the patterns to your email. You will have the option to pay securely with a credit card or send a check to the included address.

I am shooting for a three-day turnaround but that may be difficult for a few days until I get all the kinks worked out. I'll do my best. You can set a bookmark for each of the order forms but I will post them almost every day until Christmas.

$1 per/name with a 5 name minimum.

$2 per/name no minimum. 

$12 per sheet of 12 coins plus $3.50 shipping

 I sit in from of a computer several hours a day. I have to have a high-quality chair that is both comfortable and strong. The chair in this ad is neither of those two descriptions. My good chair cost me several hundred dollars. This one is $69.99.

I did buy this chair because I needed a second chain for another computer desk that I only use occasionally. I did not want to spend hundreds of dollars so I thought I would go cheap. I am adding this affiliate link because this chair has surpassed my expectations for the low price. It is comfortable for me and the quality is, as good as chairs costing twice as much. 

I am not under the illusion that this chair will last for years but for $66.99, if I get even a couple years I'll be happy. 

If you are not a large person like me then this chair will probably hold up okay. Don't expect miracles but if you need a low-cost computer chair this is worth a look. It has over 11,000 reviews and 56% are 5 out of. 5.
