Time is a bit of a funny concept. It’s tomorrow in New Zealand and tonight in Europe and it never seems to be lunchtime where I live. Despite Einstein claiming that time is relative, it seems pretty darn specific to me.
For that reason, some of my favorite gifts to make are wall clocks. In my opinion, a personalized handmade clock is much more desirable than one you pick up at Target on sale. And with the inexpensive and dependable quartz movements available, imagination is your only limiting factor when it comes to your clock designs.
Below you’ll find a clock that I made on a small CNC router. It’s oval-shaped with a bunch more ovals routed into its face and filled with epoxy. Take a look at the video; I think you’ll find it interesting.
