Hello everyone !
February is a special month. It is the birthday of my girlfriend. So now where we must demand creativity for MANY points!
Long ago I decided to venture into a custom clock, so I had a watch that was unattractive and which decided to take the machine for my project. For the background , I decided to use a model of Steve Good ( Thanks Steve! ), Which was not designed for a watch , but I somehow adapt .
So I started with the hole for the shaft , with the router then recess space for the machine , and there just rest use the jigsaw to finish the drawing . Use manual saw because the work was delicate and controlled is always more work with this .
The result was good and satisfied . I finished with a coat of varnish.
The wood background is ” Timbo ” . Extremely lightweight .
Again greetings to all of you and see you soon !
Gerardo
