I needed a clock in my office at work.
I guess I could have just asked for those cheap plastic ones that you see everywhere.
But I wanted to make something, so I took some scraps of maple and walnut that was laying around and attempted to make this watch that I had seen on this site before.
I am still deciding weather adding holes in the strap and/or adding a winding knob would be a good idea.
I made a sketchup drawing first and it worked out well.
Thanks for looking.

This is great. I think the winding knob and holes would take it to the final stage, Certainly surprising what you can do from the scrape box

Good use of scrap. I’ve wanted to make one of these for the logest time (no pun intended). A friend of mine made one along time ago and I can’t help but admire it every time I see it. I’m addin’ this to my favorites.
