I had made one of these desk clocks about 2 years ago in Red Oak. A family member expressed an interest in having one, so I set about making a new one using some Quilted Maple that I had. It’s an original design – pretty simple, though.
I used a router with a circle jig to do the circles. The center piece with the clock movement swivels 360 degrees on 1/4” wooden dowels. The base has a simple 1/8” rabbet along the top edge. I finished it with 1 coat of pure tung oil, and 3 coats of Waterlox Original.
Dimensions are 7¾” x 7½” x 7½.
