    Miniature grandfather clock

    IMG_1052.jpg
    This is a clock I did from a plan originally from hobbies in 1925 before the pen turning bug got hold of me.
    The pen and stand are for scale
    Hopefully the photo is ok

    That's really cool!
    I have an old Hobbies treadle scroll saw. It's variable speed, the longer I use it the slower it goes!
    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!

    Good one John, yes I keep tripping over my long white beard.
    I should have said that the pattern came from 1925 , but I came a bit later.

    thanks Peter
    Making pens is a lot quicker than all that fretwork, though I am happy with the result
