I found this picture of some clocks I made last year for my Dad and brothers as Christmas presents. They where pretty much my first project that became public. My Dad has since past on but he loved the clock. The interior is 1/4” Plexiglas and the frames are cherry,oak and birch the inlay on the one is also birch that was dyed black.

These are very nice and it is a neat idea as well.

Are you able to cut plexiglass with a forstner bit or is there some other way you cut it?

I used a hole saw and take it very easy the plexiglass tends to get hot, melt ,and glue itself to the hole saw I’m actually using a different style of hole saw which they call a circle cutter works a little better but you still have to take it slow
The frames where glued together with dowels. Even using dowel centers they where a pain to get just right. looking for a better method of doing that. As i would like to make these for sale at craft shows.

I like the proportions and design of the tallest clock the most . I’ll assume that is the one that you gave to your Dad : ) I’m sure he loved it !

Thanks everyone, one thing he taught me was not to be critical of myself or my work.Well that’s hard for a perfectionist but I keep telling my self it’s just wood. You can buy more.
