Art deco desk clock
Assemble and finish
1 Apply glue to the grooves in the body (A), and insert the wings (B). To hold the parts in position, use masking tape as a clamp. Next apply glue to the mortises in the base (C), insert the body and wing assembly (A/B) into the base, and clamp.
2 After the glue dries, apply a clear finish. (We sprayed on three coats of aerosol satin lacquer, sanding between coats with a 320-grit sanding sponge.)
3 Install the clock movement, put the clock on your desk, and enjoy watching time pass.
