I am at a stand still for I can't make any patterns

I thought I would start making this wood geared clock but I like to keep the original patterns and make a bunch of patterns of the hardest things in case I screw up cutting out the sprockets..

  I learned when I first bought the Dewalt 788 saw that all the pieces of any pattern needs to be made the same day on the same printer or else some of the pages I run through the printer are different sizes to the originals. Sounds weird but it happened. IMG_9876.JPG.f91b0046ad6b47785e2c46a4a62d40de.JPG

So with the printer on the blink I thought I would switch back to a clock...ornate-vintage-gold-rococo-wall-clock-New-Haven-Burwood-frame-Laurel-Leaf-Farm-item-no-n102260-1.jpg.3c41792f4676a016dae868099ee3fa92.jpg

 

The carvings caught my eye and enlarged looks even better but I didn't even realize who ever took the picture was to one side of the clock so that makes everything be lop sided but I think I have a way to fix that in the build....And then the bottom looks like who ever made the clock got tired and made the bottom too short for the rest of the carvings making it out of sink....So if I can get my brain from wandering around like I can't do anything about the pot holes in my street and I doubt if the Better Business Bureau could spell relief so....

Use some wedge shims on the back side to "square" it up;)

Depends where you have the wedgie!

For some, wedgies can cause a shimmy.B)

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
