Hi:

This is my latest project, a wall-hanging clock.

The carving is in 6/4” Cherry, but the wooden dowel pieces are out of various woods, chosen for color, texture and size. Mostly, though, I chose the sizes from the collection of dowels I had in my studio.

I used a bandsaw to cut the disks (six different diameters) all to the same thickness. The disks were lightly sanded, and then glued to the carved clock face. Because I was applying glue to the dowels’ end-grain, the disks adhered very quickly to the clock face, leaving little time for re-arranging.

The cock mechanism is a straight forward quartz type, with a 3/4” stem. I chose a set of long hands to reach across the clock face.

The finish is satin varathane which really brought out the color of the wood.

Hope you enjoy what you see :-)

Oh, by the way, I chose a verse from Psalm 31 which speaks to the conviction I have that our lives, every minute, day month and year are in the hands of a loving and faithful God.

Beautiful Clock! Very interesting design! I also like the psalm 31 verse. The letters are so nice!

Thanks Mel, Tony, for your kind words.

I am told that my daughters-in-law each want a clock like this. Oh, well! I guess that what retirement is for :-)
