This is a good use for those ends and pieces from box making. I do a lot of contrasting wood boxes, clocks, etc. and it kills me to throw away the scrap. So…. I just keeping gluing up and cutting the leftovers, cut them out with a hole saw and drill a hole to fit a small insert. On the back I usually insert a Sacajawea dollar coin. She was born right here near Salmon, Idaho and she brought good luck to Lewis and Clark. I figure she will bring good luck to the watch wearer also. I get the inserts and chains from Klockit. These are pretty good sellers at the local fundraisers.

Nice looking. I also like the use of scaps.

These are slick. Where do you get the clock inserts?

Those are 1 7/16” inserts from Klockit. I think they are 7 or 8 dollars and usually they have a 10% coupon or free shipping.

Have your say...
