These are the clocks I gave for Christmas presents this year. The large clocks have a base of one thickness of 3/4 inch particle board and one thickness of 3/4 inch hardwood plywood. I cut the disks on my band saw with my circle cutter. I then cut out the center of the plywood and cut out a space in the particle board for the clock movement. The two are them glued and braded together. I then use a 1/2 inch round over bit on the router table on the front edge. The carving leather is glued and stitched to the upholstery leather and then carved. The leather is then glued and stretched over the form. On the small clock I didn’t add the band and just tacked the upholstery leather. On the larger clocks I added a band of carving leather and tacked it with upholstsery tacks. The large clocks have 15 inch disks and the small clock has a nine inch disk. I drilled a hanging hole with a 3/4 inch Forsner bit. These are fun combination projects and get rid of a lot of scraps.
