Default New from Illinois (nowhere near Chicago)

Actually I joined some time ago, but have never posted before.
I have been interested in wooden gear clocks for quite a while and have combed the net looking at plans, projects, YouTube videos, and blogs.
I have the MLT-13 plans from the magazine (and the correction pages), the updated version of the old Thomas All Wooden Grandfather Clock, as well as many other free plans found here and there.
Up until now, my workshop has focused on electronics and metalworking; I have a mini lathe and matching mini mill both of which have provided many enjoyable hours turning bits of metal into piles of chips. I also have a small vertical bandsaw, drill press, and assorted hand and power tools.
Today the UPS man delivered a brand new scroll saw, and Thursday I should receive the magazine back issue with Clayton Boyer's Genesis clock plans, which I have picked for my first wooden clock project.
Other interests include beekeeping, motorcycling, amateur astronomy, microscopy, hiking the Shawnee National Forest, making home made lye soap, and keeping the wife from finding out how much money I have spent on the latest project.
I look forward to many hours of making sawdust over the next few months, and hopefully ending up with a working clock or two. I hope you folks won't mind if I pop up with a question or two along the way.

Welcome to the forum Aurthur.

WARNING: Clock making gets addicting.

If you have any questions ask away, I'm sure somebody will help. I have not done the Genesis clock yet but it is on my never ending to do list. The Thomas was my first clock and the one in my avatar is one by Nick Andronis. I have started on Clayton's Birds of Paradise but have not had time to finish it yet. There are a few clock makers on here so if you get stuck on something just ask.

As long as you have your towel everything will be all right.

(sorry, I had to say it).

ALWAYS know where your towel is.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!
I usually keep a low profile on forums, but I'll be lurking about in the background reading and soaking in all the wisdom I can.
And yes, one must ALWAYS keep track of one's towel!
