I’m Michael Tyler and for more than 8 years I have been creating Vectric’s Free monthly projects. I’ve made everything from spring wreaths and mantle clocks, to snow sledges and cheeseboards.
Did you know there are already more than 80 projects free for Vectric customers to take advantage of and we’re working on more every month? Each zipped project includes the files relating to the project as well as a comprehensive PDF guide that covers all the key steps help you complete your project - including tips on materials, tooling and finishes. Since 2018 free projects also come with their own video that tells the story of the project from start to finish.
This elegant and fun novelty clock is based upon the antique Model 50AL candlestick phone introduced in 1919 - the first free-standing tabletop dial telephone. Thus, began the era of rotary dial telephone sets which would span most of the 20th century...
Michael Tyler's latest project features segmented construction for the handset and mouthpiece assemblies. Aspire’s two-rail sweep modeling tool was used to create these pieces and produce a great looking simulation of an antique candlestick telephone!
The finished dimensions of this project are approximately 5.6 " W x 5.4 " D x 12 " T.
If you go ahead and create this project, then it would be great to see a photo of your finished piece over on the Vectric Forum. Alternatively feel free to email us a picture of your finished piece at firstname.lastname@example.org.
