Let's Get Started

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

STEP 1

Step 1

Begin by tracing the numbers onto the bass wood, on all four sides, as you can see in the image. You cna purchase basswood at a craft store. Add an X in the middle of the wood to help keep the numbers centered, and to mark where a hole will be drilled in a later step.

STEP 2

Step 2

Next, using the Dremel VersaTip, burn the numbers into the wood.

STEP 3

Step 3

Then, drill a hole in the center where the X is marked for the clock movement arbor. We clamped down the wood we are working with and backed it with scrap wood to avoid a blow out.

STEP 4

Step 4

Following the clock movement’s instructions, secure it to the back of the wood. Then, flip the clock over and add the hands, still following the clock movement’s instructions.

STEP 5

Step 5

Lastly, cut a block out of scrap wood using the Dremel Ultra-Saw. Glue the top half of the block under the clock movement to add support and create a stand. Once the glue has dried, the clock is ready to be displayed on a desk!
