I made this little baby out of qtr sawn white oak and Paduak. Inspired by some things I saw on the web. No plans, just kinda went along with it. About 15” tall, 4” wide. Making the oak circle around the clock face was interesting. The tile I purchased at a local tile shop, for $5. The clock mechanism is about $15 from Klockit. Was a gift for the in-laws for Christmas. Enjoyable project, well received.

-- Have a blessed day!

Thanks, Bradford, et al.

Regarding the photography, I figure if I put scores of hours into a piece, I can spend 1/2 hour taking decent photos. The two shots with the white background were done outside. The white pieces are (believe it or not) white kitchen laminate doors we swapped out! They are just at a right angle to each other, propped up with bricks. Seemed to come out pretty good.

Might be in the next issue of Klockit’s catalog, I understand.

-- Have a blessed day!

I love the clock and have been looking around for similar designs. How does Klockit work? Can you post a link to what exactly you bought from Klockit?

Klockit is just a parts store for clocks. You just need a quartz pendulum movement with the right shaft length – how far it protrudes out from the movement; typically, you’ll want 1/2 to 5/8, depending on your faceplate. They are very helpful at determining what you’ll need once you have some measurements….the design is my own, by the way…
