An expanded step-by-step scroll saw project shows how to build an exact replica of a Shaker coffin-style clock. The rest of the projects include color photographs of the finished clock, measured drawings, and cut lists. Each clock plan includes front, right side and top views.

Making wooden clocks, useful products for gift giving or resale, is well within the abilities of most woodworkers. Nelson, a clock collector, offers plans for 37 clocks, both traditional and modern. After a brief history of clocks and clock styles, he shows how to select components and offers general clock-making instructions, which helps avoid replication in the actual plans. The plans represent clocks covering a wide range of skill levels from scroll-sawn designs with a hole for a clock to a grandfather clock. The clocks are attractive, and the plans, while brief, are well done. A useful addition to woodworking collections.
