Here’s a watch I made for a recent scholarship auction. I used walnut and oak with a simple wax finish. I’ve made a few of these over the years but I keep giving them away. I’ve keep promising myself that the next one is mine, but it never works out that way.

Very nicely done. Must be a left handed watch though(he he he) I make many of those and sell at craft shows. I put some military inserts in them and they sell well. Makes for nice Christmas gifts for a boss or anyone. Great to put on the desk. I did make one for myself and have it sitting in front of me as I type this. Using many different types of woods and even doing some segmenting really sets them apart. Thanks for showing.

Very nice! It”s more fun to give stuff away than it is to keep it. Besides … you can ALWAYS make another one. I have seen that pattern before but can”t remember where. Any ideas?

Thanks everybody for the comments.

Campzeke, I found the plans in an old copy of Wood magazine, I don’t remember which issue though.

Totally cool wooden watch! Like that it can be hanged or stand on it own using the straps on a desk. Interesting and beautiful project. Great job!
