  •  Clock Shelf and Ivy Shelf Vintage Woodworking Plan Set
    This is a vintage woodworking plan. Visit our FAQ page for a full definition. View the Larger Image Slideshow to see the actual item you are buying. As for the clock shelf, a requisite for a good jig-saw pattern is a symmetrical design, usually with its opposite halves identical. You will find this true of this pattern. Indeed, a half pattern usually is shown, to be traced one side of the center line, then reversed and traced on the other side of the line. With the lines traced, it is only necessary to saw exactly to the lines to get a perfect job. As for the Ivy Shelf, small shelves like this are typical of the Victorian period, and are to be found in most antique collections. You can saw them out of plywood or hardboard, with a hand coping saw, but cutting is easier, and quicker of course, with a power jigsaw (srollsaw). Most important, however, are full-sized patterns of parts which can be traced directly onto the working material. Measurements below are for the Ivy Shelf.
