Topic tags/keywords: question clocks

I couldn’t help but notice, there are at least five clock projects all posted today. They are all strikingly similar, same construction, with stepped pilasters on each corner.
Was there some sort of woodworking class that created these projects simultaneously? Or, perhaps some how-to project plans featured in a current magazine?

Great looking clocks, by the way! I like the ones with the swirled blue glass. Just curious how so many got posted in the ’Projects’ forum at the same time, by different woodworkers.

Yes, its common to see school woodshop projects here. And they will all show up at once.
I have seen cutting boards, and step stools just as an example.
A couple of the project photos are in a classroom, but three of them you can see in the background that they are in the same shop.

Some schools shop class projects. It’s nice that this class encourages the students to post, they do some nice work and it is of course great to have the younger generation get an introduction to what can be done with a tree 8^)

I noticed this too both with clocks and coffee tables today. I assumed it was a class that choose between the two. They all have few posts but I think it great they are posting.

I thought it was part of their grade to post these projects. I seem to recall reading something along those lines last fall when we had another class post a bunch of step stools and cutting boards. I think its great whether its voluntary or part of the grade. Some of the work they do is quite good.

I believe it is the Wahoo Nebraska High School doing this. It is great to see this.

One of the pics shows the clock in a classroom. All of the posters have been here 600+ days yet only few posts. Yep it looks like a class. And judging by the posts, a good one!

Those clocks are being posted by same Wahoo High school students that posted step tools and other projects in past. Look at their past projects! :-)

Almost feels like they get some extra points on class assignment for posting it to LJ, and don’t think what other wood workers want to know? Wished the kids realized we need/want better descriptions on projects.

I have been waiting for all posters on LJ to add better descriptions on the projects.

I agree with Redoak49. The Wahoo High school has posted several different projects here in the past. Those kids pretty darn good work.

Cricket had posted a heads up last time the kids put on their show.

I think it’s great what their teacher is doing, not just his mentoring them into our passion, but having them do a social post not just to their friends, but to society as a whole. That bit of outreach is a great way to engage them into a society they don’t ordinarily run with. I just think that type of immersion can be valuable to their going out into the world, which some of them are about to do.

I applaud them, and especially their shop class teacher. I only wish the dud I had would have had more of this guys attributes. I’m pretty sure my woodshop class teacher had a full time night job, cause he slept through what we did.
