In the summer, I sawed wood for my shop stove. When I went out to grab an armload one morning, a shiny spot caught my eye. Upon close inspection I discovered that it was a spent round from shooting my S/W 357 magnum in the woods. I thought, hey why don’t I sand this and see what it looks like. After the sanding, I realized their was potential for a project here. Maybe I could do a precision shot into a nice piece of walnut, then expose it and use it somehow.
I’m thinking that if I can square the end of a 12 inch long piece of walnut that’s at least 12 inches in diameter, I can then do precision shots into the side at “0” degrees, “90” degrees, “180” degrees, and “270” degrees. Then create a clock face to show the bullets representing quarter marks of the clock face and if I choose to, I can add the non numeric indicator marks for 1,2,4,5,7,8,10,11, Tic marks. Maybe I could use my 1/2 inch number stamp set to create the numbers.
I need to find a good source for high quality clock works if any of you Lj’s know of any good suppliers.
