Big wall clocks are very popular these days, but they cost a small fortune to buy. They sell between 500 to 700 $ here in Norway in interior shops. I´ve decided to build my own, and when I was done, My sister, mother, two of my friends was so impressed that they ordered one for them selves. As long as they payed for the material, I made them just for the fun of it, and for being a nice guy :-) The materials I used, is just som scrap pine that has been lying around the shop. (Sorry about all the pictures beeing sideways…..)

Of course, now I just feel stupid. Sorry about that, but blogging is not my thing. And it is hard enough to write in English here :-)

Hank, first, welcome to Lumber Jocks! I think your clocks are wonderful and you must be a nice guy to make so many for friends and family. It would be great if you would give us more information about how you created the clocks. For example, how you created the lettering and numbers for the clock face and what type of mechanism you used for the inside of the clock. Hope this translation works -

Hank, første, velkommen til Trelast Jocks! Jeg tror at klokker er fantastisk, og du må være en fin fyr å gjøre så mange for venner og familie. Det ville være flott hvis du vil gi oss mer informasjon om hvordan du opprettet klokker. For eksempel, hvordan du opprettet bokstavene og tallene for klokke face og hva slags mekanisme du brukes til innsiden av klokke. Håper denne oversettelsen fungerer -

Northwest29, thank you for using google translate, it really is no need for that. I used pine boards, about 2 cm thick (metric system in Norway) Glued them together (used biscuits) and then made a circle using my circle jig. On the backside of the clock i used my router to make a large enough opening for the clock mechanism.
Belive it or not but all the letters and numbers and what not on the clock is hand painted. Takes some time, but it makes every clock unique. The mechanism was bought at a local hardware store (the kind that comes in a package you are ment to put on a wall with numbers and stuff) and I just used the mechanism and the clock arms.
