It's about time that we make something simple.

This desk clock is very simple to make. I used 1/4" maple for the face. The back is 1/2" thick walnut. The feet are 3/4" walnut. The clock face is five inches square.

One tip when making the feet. Make sure the notches are a snug fit to the clock. Build the clock body then cut the notches to fit. The notches in the feet are at a slight angle so the clock leans back a few degrees.

I buy the clock movements that are 2 1/8" X 2 1/8" square and have a stem that fits 1/4" Thick face. These clock movements are cheap and you can come up with all kinds of projects using them.
