« Part 4: Shop Student Seeking Plans Part 5 of Shop Class series no next part

Well, as a shop student there are many projects that are new to me. I recently made my very first nightstand, I turned my very first pen about a month ago (and about 10 since), finishing up my first picture frame as well. My next project is going to try and build a unique clock. So, maybe the LJ crew can help me out. I am starting with a 3 1/2 inch diameter clock insert. Kind of simple, but still for my first one it should work. I am hoping to make it around a foot tall and maybe around 8” wide. The design is really stumping me though. LJs got any advice?

What about a mantle clock? I know thats not that unique but…or you could make an undertakers clock (think tombstone shaped) and leave out 1 battery so it ran at half speed afterall I’ve never met and undertaker that was in a hurry!
