Wooden Wall Clock with template



The need for a wall clock, finally fulfilled.  Decided to create it completely with wood and so chose my favorite raw material – the one side teak (OST) sheet for the clock face. Interestingly, we used the rear of the sheet which seemed to have a more natural wood feel to it with accentuated grains. The clock mechanism was bought at a nearby clock repair shop.

For the numbers, we used wooden buttons available at fancy stores (RS Fancy stores, LB Road, Adayar). The button placement was quite a challenge though, since we didn’t have a protractor. We printed out a clock face template from the internet and traced the 30 degree angles onto the OST.

The clock face was sanded with 80, 100,120,150,220 grit sand papers in that order for the smooth surface finish.  It was then sealed with wood sealer which highlighted the grains further. Used a flat wood bit to drill right in the center through which the clock mechanism was finally fixed.

So here it is - A simple wall clock that serves its purpose.

P.S. For all those interested in making a clock, here's a simple clock template. If you think using a protractor might be just a little painful, you can simply print out the template and trace the 30 deg angles on your clock face
