Default 9 months??!!

The longest project in my shop history, 9 months to complete the Mill Clock but it is done. I need to get a new life or something, this one is way to hectic! Thanks for the advice from Walter Koshen III and the pics to help me visualize the finished project!! Pics are on my web page - 'In the Shop' section.

With the title of 9 Months I thought there was a pregnancy involved. Oh well, great work on the clock!!!

Indeed, I had the camera set at 6 megapixels for printing.

And Thanks Evie - I have done a bit of fretwork in the past, there is another page on my site that has past work on it. I really enjoy it and have a pattern that has been in the drawer for a couple of years because when I got it, it was a lot harder than I anticipated. I think I am ready now.

And lastly, yes, it almost seemed like a pregnancy - I still do not understand the mental block this one casued, it is far from being my most difficult project. Who knows.

No doubt Wood Dog, at 80 years and not so good of health I am very blessed to still have him!
