Hi, this is a first for me on this site, my clock is 34” diameter 3 1/2” thick made of hard maple and cherry and weighs 40 lbs. Counting the 36 biscuits and the walnut numbers (bought at Lee Valley) there are 130 pieces of wood in this project. The glue up and clamping was a bit stressful and lots of router work. The face is quilted maple my first attempt at veneering.
The wife wanted it in the house but it still hangs in my shop on the man cave side. Bye for now.

Welcome to LumberJocks.

Nice looking clock. That is a very good job of veneering.

Great design and work.
I have turned a couple of large clock bezels on a lathe and understand the difficulties you had with this one. I never thought of doing it with a circle jig and a router.

That looks like a great project to do on my lathe.

Awesome clock. I’m sure it wasn’t easy to make it but it worth any time and effort, I soppose. It could be wonderfull gift for someone – I have to build one – just making some various angle cutting jig. Numbers are scrolled ebony or wenge?
