Art deco desk clock

We all have 'em: wood scraps too little to be of much use, but too beautiful to toss out. Now you can fashion those exotic or figured castoffs into a handsome timepiece.

Contrasting species highlight the
clock's shapely figure. Here we
chose spalted maple and walnut
for a blond-over-brown variation.

As a convenience to allow you to view this free woodworking plan before downloading it, we offer a page-by-page review. If you like the plan, you'll find a Free Downloadable Plan link on the last page of the plan. The downloadable plan will have larger, easier to view illustrations than the online preview. Thanks for viewing, and enjoy the build.

I made this clock 2 years ago with lacewood and curly maple. It was great but I would like to see a better way to make the mortises.

The clock insert shown is Klockit's #15267 - White Arabic Dial with Chrome Bezel (http://www.klockit.com/products/sku-ooooo.html). There are many other styles also available on the webpage that will also work here.

I'm sorry, am I being dense or did I miss where to get the clock? I'd like to build a couple of these for some friends. Thanks, Leo
