This is my offering to the few bomb clocks I’ve seen on here by SgtSnafu and VillageWood.
The base is 6” x 10” walnut with a roman ogee router design. The clock face is birds eye maple veneer on a 3 3/8” x 3 3/8” piece of pine. The 2” clock insert from Lee Valley is brass in colour to match the screws and nuts. The ‘TNT’ dowels are 8” x 1” from Home Depot and spray painted red. The brass screws, washers, nuts, and knurled nuts are from Home Depot. And the wire is from a regular 14/3 measuring 33” long and curled around a tube to give it the spiral look.
I used small 1/4” dowels to join everything together, because I like to over kill everything I do. It is very strong this way, and I have no fear of it falling apart in my hands.
This was a lot of fun to make, and I’m keeping this one for myself.
