FIRST, my apology for this project is being not made of timber, but it had served my wood work all its life. Now, it is retired and just sitting on the wall of my work shop looking at me and admiring all the works it has helped me with to achieve and reminding me with my schedule. Sorry my friend for pushing you too hard and thank you for your (almost daily) 15 year service. Happy retirement.

What a nice way to remember an old faithful workmate. I think I can see some sawdust caught up in the teeth, so it sure qualifies. Nice clock for the work shop.

15 years out of a saw blade? That alone should be memorialized!

Cute post.

Very good Sam!

Now, is the blade Sharp or Dull? ... might be a safety hazard…

They can accidentally fall off hooks, etc.

Nice way to preserve an old friend…

Thank you.

It will always be a faithful reminder of how long you have come together as a workmate.

GREAT IDEA. I have just retired, and started my woodworking full time, very recently, it is a long time, before one of my circular saw blades become eligible to retire !!

Lew, the numbers and few pieces of plywood in the back are glued by Fast Grip. The PW ring is to take the thickness of the clock, as shown in the attachment.

Lizardhead, I wish I could send you a pack of tiisue before you claim for few $Ms compensation.
Loe, thanks for your concern, Fast Grip is strong enough. It glues everything to anything.
AND I thank you all for your comments.
