First off Thx to the, WoodWhisper’s ( Marc ) video on the interesting clock design. Watched it in his video section one day and thought this would work for the shorts.
I just made one of Marc’s clocks he posted on his site. It was for a friend whose Father was a Reverend and had passed away while ago. My buddy gave me 2 big boxes of different exotic wood’s his father collected over the years. They were all shorts, none more than 12 inches long. After watching his clock video I thought it would be perfect gift he could remember him by.
I used Cherry for the frame and Padauk for the splines and center floating section. I use 1/4 inch cherry dowel, and a clock insert from Rockler. I had the plate made at a bowling trophy shop and used 5 min epoxy on the back to secure it. I made a jug for the splines.
I used my new Incra 1000 and Forrest Woodworker II for the miters and must say, I like the way they come out! I have 3 more that will go as gifts when done.
It was a perfect project with the wood I received.
Again Thank-you I really hope he likes this and every-time he looks at it has great memories of a wonderful man and Father.
