Another amazing design by Michael T. This one could also be scaled up to make a full scale clock. Great job.

Thanks, fellas! I hope everyone who chooses to do this project will enjoy it as much as I did.

It could indeed be "sized-up". However, I would likely use a few different techniques for a full-size version for creating the decorative mouldings and sections. This "mini-version" is more simple and straightforward to cut/carve/assemble.

I added a couple misc. pics below...will post more pics later after the final finish is applied.

Fantastic, Mike! Well on your way to getting it done!

It took me awhile but finally finished my build. Used african mahogany, and Bush Oil for the finishing. My dad sponsored the project so we would put it at his place.

Hi buckeyes66,

This is designed to be an Aspire-only project. I'm sorry, but no VCP files are available for this.

I'm glad you like it, though!
