Mission Clock – I had some inspiration one night and designed this clock along with two others that are still on the board to build. The original design was built and I found a two defects in the original and problems in constructibility (Made up word?). Decide to work them out by building two others for gifts. The original in cherry and walnut base is my favorite with proportions of (8.25w, 6.5d,17.75h). The clock face diameter thin up the side too much so redesign included adding 3/4” width and canning walnut base as I was the only one who liked the opposing color. The clock is finished in danish oil with a quartz movement. The movement is a short swing – normal swing will tap sides “experience”.

Beautiful work. I like them quite a bit. Did you make/print your own clockfaces or purchase them?
Thanks for sharing.

The clock faces are drawn up in autocad and printed and copied onto resume paper. I tried the free pdf format I found online but was too difficult to get the size and style I wanted. You have to make it yourself if you want to thow a little comic sans into a clock face (third clock on right). My thinking is that ink jet would not last long and zerox will last longer and be more fade resistant.

Cool idea, wonder if a decoupage type of application would help in the fading of ink.
