My dad is an airplane nut, retired from the state patrol air division. I was at the naval air museum in Pensacola while on vacation and saw this propeller clock. See pic below. Obviously I know how to drill out and put an insert in, just looking for a plan, pattern, or suggestions on how to make the twists/slant/warp in the propeller.

One of our LJ members has made a propeller.
Check out Andy's project.
He did say at one time he was going to do a blog on the process,
you could try to PM him for some help, he has helped me with some
of my boxes….
