Clock frames and bases
I recently constructed several items that involved clocks, clock/thermometer combinations, and a weather gauge.
The hardware came from Klockit and the wood is mostly cedar, stained dark and coated with urethane. The ligher clock/thermometer unit was made from scrap 2x4 pine, minus the knots. None of the work involved woodworking kits.
I hope to sell some of these on consignment at a local arts/crafrs shop, but if the project goes flat (and it might as the economy power dives) I will at least have a number of Christmas presents for family and friends.
A 15-inch steel ruler is in front of the items in each photo for a size reference.
The fourth photo shows the various wood pieces in mid project. For closer stylistic perfection, the open backs of the weather-related gauge cutouts are covered with black-plastic screening.
