Showcase cover image for I get hung up on clocks

Project Information

Here are some of the steps I wandered through for a different clock. I use store bought carving pieces to start my thoughts then trace around some parts of those carvings and sometimes adding a curve here and there to get them long enough or shorter to connect the lines. The carvings are only 1/4" thick or less and I start with 1" thick wood to carve. The fourth picture is what I decided the clock to look like but you can see the one I ended up with is only close to what is started out looking. I made the dial from a picture I got off google or somewhere then scrollsawed it out. When buying the clock movement one has to remember how thick the wood is counting the dial so I can buy the right movement.

The wood is hard maple, takes longer to carve but I only use electric and air grinders and no hand chisels. I'm lazy.

I always spray lacquer for the finish. And I am still using printers ink for the colors and a little glitter here and there.

I'll try to answer any questions you might have.
