Art deco desk clock
Now make the base
1 Cut a 3/4 x 2 1/4x 10" blank for the base (C). Resaw the blank to 5/8" thick. (We used a tablesaw.) Then crosscut the blank to 6".
2 Photocopy the Base Pattern and adhere it, centered, to the blank.
3 To form the mortises in the base (C) to receive the wings (B), chuck a 1/4" bit in your drill press. We prefer the flat bottoms produced by a Forstner bit, but a brad-point bit also will work. Adjust your drill-press fence to center the bit over the marked mortises on the pattern.
