I was sitting here after working in the wood shop today fesh out of the shower watching some old Woodsmith shows on the DVR. I know I’m addicted to woodworking its a great hobby while wife is at work. At least she knows what I ‘m doing LOL …Sorry rambling,
I was looking above the TV to see what time it was, and realized, man I made this clock for my Grandma and gave to here when I was in 7th grade. I received the clock back after she passed. As far as I can remember this was the first real project I ever made. I sit and look at the every day and never really gave it any thought.
It was made in 3 sections. I glued up oak strips about 1 inch thick in 3 sections. Once I cut out the back in the middle section, I then glued all three of them together. I laid out the holes and the center for the clock works. I then drilled the holes, 2 different sizes and rounded the corners and routered the edges along with the holes. Don’t remember what I finished it with.
Thx for looking.
