This clock is very basic and simple compared to most. I belong to a fishing club and for our Christmas Party we each bring a $10.00 gift for a gift exchange just for the spirit of things. You can’t buy much for $10.00 any more so I decided to use the $10.00 and make something. Actually as simple as it was it was a decent hit. The guy that got it seemed thrilled. So I made one from cherry with praying hands for my mom and changed the faces for a different look. Clock movements came from Cherry Works and the oak and cherry were sraps from the shop. Stained the oak one and sprayed with laquer. The cherry one just sprayed on laquer. Kept me under the $10.00 limit.

How did you stay under the limit with the clock works and all? I googled Cherry Works and all I got was a custom furniture shop. I usually get my clock parts from Lee Valley and the cheapest I have seen there is $12.50…

Inserts are 2-3/4 with a 2-3/8 hole. Bought the insert from for $6.95 plus shipping but I bought a few extra.
