Wednesday Woodworking – clock and pegboard

With the long weekend I managed a bit of time in the workshop.  Here are two of the projects I worked on:

This is going to be a clock.  The picture is just after I took it out of clamps.  There are three veneers in this and all the pieces were knife cut.

New pegboard and a new setup for the scroll saw.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,
