Scrollsaw Projects

I’m pleased to show you some of my scrollsaw projects. Click on any of the photos to see more details. I encourage you to come back often to see what’s new!

The Wooden Gear Clock

While most of the hours spent on this project involved the scrollsaw, I turned the clock face, the weight body, the pendulum bob, the grooves in the pulleys, and the ornamental buttons on the shafts and hands on the lathe. Putting tacky stick-on numbers on the clock face just didn’t seem right; instead, I made a segmented ring of red oak and walnut to give the face a modern, clean look. The clock has been ticking away for several years now, with only occasional adjustments due to temperature or humidity changes in the room. The Clayton Boyer-designed clock is 54 inches high, with a face that is 11 inches in diameter.

The Creepy Bot

This piece is another Clayton Boyer design, which provided great scrollsaw practice. A small gearmotor and a 9-volt battery propel the robot over even the most rugged alien terrain. The robot measures about 6 inches high and 12 inches long.

Puzzle Boxes

I made these simple boxes from walnut and padauk. Each has a secret compartment inside, in which one can hide valuable treasures. The boxes measure 1.625 x 2.875 x 1.875 inches.
