Timezone clock

Finished this one a while ago. My girlfriend asked me to make a timezone clock for a gift for someone. She gave me a picture of what she wanted it to look like and off I went.

I started off with a full size layout and a chunk of walnut.

Next was off to the jointer to true it up.

After I had it jointed I planed it down. Didn't take a picture of that, oops. I then cut out the full size template and flush trimmed it with my quick router table setup.

After shaping both sides I ended up having a bit of tear out and changed the radius a tad.

I then cut the top an bottom and put a roman ogee profile on them, forgot to take pics. I ended up having an unsightly angled encased knot in the shaped piece which did not look to nice so I ended up veneering the whole piece. After that I drilled holes with a forsner bit on the drill press and then a little sanding before glue up.

That's a great looking project. Fantastic work. I'm sure that she was happy with that, after all, who wouldn't be?

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
