These clocks are rewarding projects. They are fun, and can be made quickly; selecting the proper lumber, and the finish, require care and attention to detail. I let my imagination roam a bit, to give these two clocks totally different looks:
If using thicker wood, such as 1-¾” final thickness, the clocks can stand on a 7° bevel on the bottom, without a base:
At this angle and height, the clocks are very stable. The area below the clock face could be used to attach a plaque or an engraved gift note. Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing one or more for the holidays.
