This Vectric Dutch Country Wall Clock project features layered stacked panels with a v-carved Pennsylvania Dutch “tole” painting style design. According to Wikipedia, tole painting became most popular during the 18th century in New England and “was extensively carried on among German immigrants in Pennsylvania”.
I used to do a lot of tole painting myself and the Vectric software made it fun and easy to adapt this popular folk art style to a CNC machinable v-carved design. Tole painting is often referred to as ‘one stroke painting’ because each design element is painted with a single stroke of the brush. I tried to mimic that style in this clock design.
The overall finished dimensions of the Dutch Country Wall Clock are about: 1.5″ D x 10.375″ W x 14″ T.
This free Vectric Project requires Aspire 4 or VCarve Pro 7 or higher.
