DIY Project: One-of-a-Kind Wood Clock

This month we’re tackling a one-of-a-kind project that is easy for beginners and professionals. Grab that cool piece of wood you’ve been saving and turn it into a statement clock in just a few simple steps.

Materials Needed:

Piece of wood
Clock insert
Forstner bit
Drill Press
Sandpaper or sander (depending on the size of your wood)

Building the Wood Clock

Drill pressing cutting a clock sized hole to make a wood clock.

Start with an interesting chunk of wood. Perhaps you found it on a trip, or it’s from a local tree that was removed. You may just like the interesting shape or grain pattern. Whatever wood you choose, make sure that it is at least 1″ thick and has a flat bottom to make a stable base.

Next, get a friction-fit clock insert in the size and style you like and determine the hole size required to mount it. Using a forstner bit, drill a hole about ¾” deep into the wood where you’d like the clock face. Sand, finish, and push in the clock insert. Wham! You have a beautiful, one-of-a-kind timepiece.
