Maple base and clock case with Fir Dowel.

This is a fun project that uses LOTS of Epoxy.

I found plans for this project on Instructables… http://www.instructables.com/id/The-time-bomb-clock/

I started this almost 2 years ago and never got around to finishing it until a week or so ago. It’s a popular showpiece as people walk through my shop.

Truthfully it’s probably about 3-5hrs of work start to finish so give it a try.

You realize your now on a government watch list.

Cute project.

Great project, I may have to make one for my wife with an alarm clock. She wears out the “snooze button” on her clock. :-)

@woodbutcher, that would go over like a screen door on a submarine. LOL

Nice work MrBagel, I love it. Think I’ll make a few for gifts.

I love the fact that you used ACME Dynamite. Do be careful though that stuff always seems to trigger at the wrong time.
Great project, really do need to make one someday.

Depending on how its wired, the “snooze” could be problematic…
Nice piece. Can I copy?
