  • Wall Hanging Watch-Clock

    I found a clock in a local thrift store with the perfect movement to liberate for a wall hanging watch-clock. The watch is the result of a combination of scrollsaw and woodturning work. The watch-clock frame itself is black walnut, the bands are cherry and the buckle is holly. The movement is 3 1/4" in diameter.

    I originally posted this in Fretwork and Portraits but it seemed to be inappropriate for that forum so I have moved it.

            I remember seeing these in the 60's and 70's. Mind sharing where you found the pattern or is it your design?

                Thanks for the comments. I saw a similar pattern in Weekend Woodcrafts - December 1998, but that pattern had a much squarer watch body. Having the lathe waiting for exercise I thought the rounded watch body would look more like a real watch. The most difficult part was turning the rabbet concentric to the back of the hole for the movement. This was needed so the back of the movement could pinch up against it.

                      wipe on poly and tack cloth
                      by dwssr2
                      Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
                      How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...

                      Don’t forget to carry insurance if you sell a lot. It’s a necessary expense and a good "silent" partner and hope it stays that way.

                      I was afraid some of my puzzles would not pass the test, but they did.. (I have some that I sell that would not (they are from the magazine) so I am not going to make them for sale anymore as I am worried about sales of those.. Maybe the magazine should have a statement of warning of small pieces if...
