ON GORHAM'S POND
by Billie Holm
Copy the upright pattern and transfer it to the selected stock, attaching it with spray adhesive. Bore the 1-3/8"-Dia. hole where indicated to receive the clock movement. Bore blade entry holes in the waste areas and make all cuts, beginning with the inside and working toward the perimeter. Cut the base piece to size, slightly rounding each corner. With sandpaper, round over the upper surface of the base piece.
Using the upright pattern as a guide, trace the oval pattern for the backer onto the Baltic birch plywood. Stay about 1/8" inside the outer perimeter line and make sure the bottom is flat. Saw the backer piece to shape.
Thoroughly sand all piecos. Paint the backer board as desired. Apply two coats of clear finish to the upright and base pieces. When dry, glue the upright centered on the base and attach the backer to the rear. Insert the clock movement and enjoy!
Wood: cherry or wood of choice—one piece 1/2" x 7" x 9-1/4" (for the upright), one piece 1/2" x 2" x 10-5/8" (for the base); Baltic birch plywood—one piece 1/8" x 6-7/8" x 9" (for the backer) Tools: scroll saw with assorted blades; drill with bits
