Cleaning out my short stock bin, I found enough to make this nice QSWO clock. It has a 4” insert I purchased from Klockit. The top is about 14” x 6”. These are fun to make up and I sell them for $125 each. A coat of Danish oil dark walnut followed by 2 coats of wipe on poly. Thanks for taking a look!

This looks great! What do you use to make the hole for the insert?

Thanks! I cut the hole using my scroll saw. This insert required a 3-3/4” cut out. I made the circle about a 1/16” under. I than took it to my spindle sander and sanded it until the insert slipped in

Steve, I think you have perfected the buffalo clock art form. I have a couple scraps that might end up as a clock. Time will tell. ha

That’s a wonderful looking clock Steve. You just can’t beat the look of QSWO.

A fine looking clock—nice piece of oak, and smart looking movement!

Scroll saw huh. Impressive. Not sure mine would cut oak that thick. I’m sure if I showed this to my wife it would end up my honey-do list pretty quick.
