I was asked by Bruce what work was involved in hand finishing laser cut blanks. I am neither the craftsman nor the photographer, but the pictures were especially produced at my request to document the process so that I could share them. I'm not even the customer! The blanks were produced from photographs I took of a set of hands on another longcase of a similar age. This clock came with 19th century hands, over 100 years out of style. I know a company that sells blanks but we could not find a set to suit so these were custom made. There are a lot of pics and a few notes at the end. The second hand was made from scratch, the hour and minute are the laser cut blanks.
