Hi, New to woodwork, and need help.
My name is Graham, and I have very little experience working with wood.
I want to make a wooden clock from my parents Christmas this year, and as my parents know that I am useless with wood - it will mean a lot to them.
The clock is to have 3 wooden towers, on blocks - which will indicate the time Hrs, Mins, and Secs respectivly.
The towers need to be hollow, and I will need to be able to put the clock components into them, and thats where i am struggling.
I have attached a picture, I want to inlay some simple decoration (the 2 vertical stripes on each tower)
How can i open up the towers to put the parts in, then join them again neatly, as I want to laquer the entire clock - but cannot sand over the clock parts.
I was thinking of an OAK/CHERRY combination, but would welcome ideas that you think would be better.
Thanks in Advance
