Here’s a project for people that like to do spindle turning and segmented turning. I’d say, though, that there’s more woodworking than woodturning in this project. The photo shows the prototype that I recently finished which is 15-1/2” diameter. The The clock in this version is a 5-1/2” brass porthole clock that has the tide table built into it.
The SketchUp rendering shows a larger 21” diameter wheel that I’m now building. I’ve designed it so that I can substitute a larger clock if I find one that is more interesting. EBay has lots to choose from and I’m keeping my eye out for a clock or gauge that has some historic significance.
