We had a Shop Art Swap that’s just wrapping up now, and I made this mini workbench with tools in a lit shadowbox and turned it into a clock. It was fun, and I think the first swap item that my wife actually wanted to keep…

Stanley #3 for size scale, the shadowbox is 9”x11”, and the workbench is 6” long (not including boards hanging off).

The top/back are also removable as one thing, in case the glass or clock need to be replaced

Incredible work, Mos, and a cool idea.
I may have to commission a clock for my shop?

Thanks guys!

Terry, you’ll have to get in line behind one for my own shop :-P It was quite fun to make. I was exceptionally proud of the 3 mini planes, and hold fasts lol

Mos, give me a shout when you want some tiny infill knobs or heat-treated irons.
Hope they don’t get lost in the packaging.

I’m guessing that might work better than the 6061 aluminum plane iron in the jack plane! (also the fact that it doesn’t protrude through the bottom/there is no mouth on the plane doesn’t help lol)

When I see this I get three words in my mind …... Attention To Detail!
Nice work. This has to be the most unusual shop clock out there.

Might not be such a bad thing :-P Originally I wanted to get mini wall sconce lights to light the workbench instead of the LED strip in the top panel, but the only place I could find them were for doll houses, and they weren’t very cheap…

Coming from someone who does the level of marquetry that you do, I’m humbled by that. Thanks!
