I have seen this design before, but I made two clocks for my brothers in law for christmas. Little different stain and glass to reflect their different personalities. The clock face is simply printed resume paper glued onto a cardboard backer.

Nice design.
I’ve heard you can print clock faces which is about the only way to get something different than the usual stuff they sell everywhere. I’ve managed to find a few places to get a couple distinctive looking clocks, but not very many. I’ve just graduated from inserts to piecing the clock together from parts at Klockit and various other places that have one or two unique items. I’d like to get 30 clocks made similar to yours, art and solid wood in creative designs for some shows this summer.

The clock face I set up in adobe illustrator and printed it out to my size. The clock PARTS I have not found. Klockit seems to have some stuff, but nothing interesting. Where else would you suggest to check?

I spend hours every week scouring every search I can find on clocks and I use Google Image Search so I can see what I’m doing. I get so much stuff from different places. You have to mix and match. I try to get the mechs that sync with atomic time and just order the face, bezel, glass and hands if they don’t come with the face. I try to stay with solid brass and glass. None of my clocks are what you’d call formal and most are one of a kind.

Yes, the numbers are unusual. Not the run of the mill. The glass is a real stand out too….................
