  • Making Wooden Clocks/Nelson

    I'm working on page 88, Kitchen Clock with Drawer, and am confused by clock dimensions. Item 13/movement-quartz has 3.25 diameter when the width of the front(item #3) is the same width. The exploded view suggest a 2 3/8th hole. What type of clock is illustrated? I checked Klockit. The exploded view indicates enough room for the clock....the measurements don't. What am I missing? Thanks for your help. It's a very nice book.

    Hi John,
    Here's what John said.

    Sorry I took so long in getting back to you...........I was away on vacation and just got back.

    Everything is correct as shown. The width of the front, part 3. IS 3 1/4 wide as noted........................the two side pieces, part 1 are 3/4 thick and go OUTSIDE the front so the width of the clock front is actually 4 3/4 wide, thus the 3 1/4 diameter movement will fit perfectly as shown. ..............I GATHER this is the question???? ANY 3 1/4 diameter quartz insert will work. I would suggest Klockit's no, 15561 should work. That insert uses a 2 7/8 dia. hole I think...........Don't drill the hole till you get the insert.

        Finally got my energy level up enough to drag the saw out and get started on thank you state magnets for for all of my critical care nurses and doctors. They truly became like family in those days.
        This is 24 of the first 34 I am doing. These are all cut from some 3/8" wood I had intended...

        I said in late winter I was going to make a sign for my son's wedding. Becky thought I was crazy for working on it so early, but considering my current health issues, I am glad I finished early.
        Knew nothing about making a sign, but knew I could cut, so I jumped in--blind to some of the challenges...
