This clock is walnut and the legs are laminated with walnut and oak. I need to buy more clock inserts because I have tons of design ideas for these.
Does anyone have any good sources for a variety of clock inserts? These use a small watch battery and are not as easy to replace cause they are so tiny. I also want some that use aaa batteries.

Greg, check out www.klockit.com have found a lot of inserts… check my projects for a couple that I have used. Keep up with the great ideas for insert clocks, you have a knack for it. I like this winged version a lot. What are you doing/using to sculpt the wings? Without a scale, it’s hard to tell, but how big is the clock overall?

870pilot, thanks…I just looked at the website for klockit and it looks good.
I use my trusty angle grinder to shape the clocks, followed by my random orbit sander and hand sanding. I have been doing it alot so it seems to go much faster with practice. The wing design is about 14” wide.

Nice looking clock. I see you have two posted and I wanted to ask the same question you ask Greg. I like this winged one best. A hat tip to 870pilot, thanks for the info.

a fine looking “USAF” clock, Greg. I too was wondering what you’re using to sculpt those outstanding grooves you do. Thanx. I don’t have an angle grinder yet, but imagine I need to get one. Do you use the 4 1/2” ginder?
