I made my 1st of this style clock about 2 years ago and posted it then. These came out really cool, so I thought I post them.
I’ve sailed for a long time, and we have a boat, Terrapin, that was actually built by a fellow LJ’er (shipwright) back in 1985. I actually found him via his LJ blog where he was discussing in detail the construction of our boat for her original owner.
I’ve been doing a lot of metal etch work over the last couple years (I’ve started that as a business venture), so I decided to try a handful of etched clock dials with sailboats on them and here they are:
1st pic – Isometric view of our boat on an etched copper dial in a maple bracket clock. I messed around with a background pattern on this one, and I really like how it came out.
2nd pic – Sail plan of our boat on an etched nickel silver dial in an oak mantle bracket clock (that the clock body really came out bad and will be my shop clock).
3rd pic – Sail plan of a Valiant 40 (a classic cruising sailboat) on an etched nickel silver dial in a cherry bracket clock.
4th pic – Sail plan of a J-105 (a great racing sailboat) on an etched nickel silver dial in a cherry bracket clock.
