Ray Baumbach of Enderby, B.C., Canada, created this clock as a tribute.
“I wanted to design a clock in memory of a remarkable person,” Ray explained. “She will always be remembered.”
Ray used oak for most of the clock, but used juniper to make the attic door stand out. It took Ray quite some time to design the pattern, but once he started working on the clock, the project progressed quickly.
“The cutting, gluing, and oiling took about three weeks,” Ray said. “But I only worked on it four or five hours a day.”
by Gloria Chandler
A family commission inspired Gloria Chandler to design and create this project based on the hymn Amazing Grace.
“My uncle and his family have a music room in their home,” Gloria explained. “My aunt wanted a project to hang over the piano. It was her suggestion of music notes with wavy lines that inspired this piece.”
The Philadelphia, Pa., resident used Baltic birch plywood to create the 36"-long wall-hanging. The piece represents the first few notes in Amazing Grace.
“The pattern took about a month and a half to create, but I was able to cut it in a few hours.” Gloria said. “I could have cut it faster, but I had to keep moving my scroll saw to accommodate the length of the piece.”
