This is my first project on lumberjocks but not the last! It’s just the most recent on the camera. I started wood working about 6 or 7 months ago when we finally bought a house with a garage. After a few side tables and assorted projects its my new favortie hobby.
This is another time bomb clock, inspired by many of the ones ive seen on this site with a few custom touches. I wanted to build all my xmas presents this year and this one went to my niece. She has a quirky sense of humor so I thought this would be perfect and it was. She loved it.
I bought a travel alarm clock and a couple one inch wooden dowels. I cut the dowels to 8’’ and built a simple case for the clock. I attached wires into the painted wooden dowels with 5 minute epoxy and bolted them to the top of the wood box. the red button is a 3/8’’ wood dowel painted red and it goes through to push the clock light/snooze button of the clock. It’s all mounted on a 10’’ x 12’’ piece of 3/4’’ pine with a routered edge. The box is made of aspen and the dowels are oak. The bar in front holds the clock in, when you pop out the plug and take out the screw you can take out the clock and program the alarm.
All in all it came out pretty good.
