This clock was made to celebrate a company’s ( decade of business and was given as a gift by my uncle. He wanted a very unique personal gift that showed his respect for their achievements. The 11 dimes are dated and stand for the years of business, with a good luck jade stone inset at high noon. I cut the company’s logo out of the center as the main art.

I started with a natural edged walnut cutoff that had a nice shape. After resawing it into 2 layers I made the logo cutout in the top layer and after sanding both layers smooth, glued them back together. I bought the dime sized forstner bit from Rockler and got the clock works from Klock-it.

I applied Watco Danish oil natural for a couple of coats and then buffed everything for the shine.

The most time consuming part was adapting the company logo to a scroll saw pattern. It was hard to figure out how to keep the center clock post from coming out of her nose.

I had a lot of fun working on this one.
