    I'm in. Is this too much of a hint? Or not enough of a hint?

    I don't necessarily need to know what your project will be, as I'm sure many of you will want to keep it a surprise, but I sure would like to know who is participating in the competition.

    No secrets here. I've been working on a new clock design on and off for some time now. The contest is good motivation to get it done. I have been using 1/4" Baltic birch plywood for the wheels (larger gears) on other clocks, but on this clock I want to use hardwood and give the wheels some 3D features. The wheel blanks are made from 7/16" oak cut into wedges and assembled to prevent warping. The clock will have five wheels similar to this one. I'm using pierced carving inside the wheels which makes more sawdust but avoids tabs and takes very little extra machine time.

    No way I can compete with DickB or LG, so I will shoot for the booby prize. If I get it done satisfactorily, it will demonstrate what the bare bones machine can do with only the carving bit (cutting bit is no longer standard issue) and the basic Designer software with no use of add-ons and 2 patterns from the pattern store (mine of course). It is based on a late 1700 European wood working concept shown to me by Roy Underhill.

    The cool thing is - everybody wins something and we'll all get to enjoy seeing the projects!

    Never, ever compare yourself to others, but enjoy your own innovations. Compare yourself only to yourself.
