I had some scraps of Sapele and Maple left over after making the monitor stand and ran across the plans for this desk clock in a WoodSmith magazine so decided to give it a try. Since this only took a couple of hours to make I planned on making five or so of them for Christmas presents but I put if off too long and it got to cold so will have to make some in the spring for next year! It’s hard to judge the scale from the pictures but it is pretty small. The clock is about the size of a wrist watch.

Very nice, looks kinda art deco, I was thinking of making one to sit by my TV cause we got rid of the VCR and about all we used it for was to tell time, but I would like to have a digital face. I like the design.

I like it. I will be making something similar just in a larger version to fit a clock mechanism I already own. Thanks for the idea and posting.

Fantastic clock. Looks like a simple design but I can see the challenge in the curves. Great job.

Great use of scraps!

Keep it up.
