For Christmas I decided to make my Dad a clock for his new business. I included his business card on it and used his colors. My husband loved it so much that he made me make his mom and 2 brothers clocks for Christmas as well. I just used what they love most. I actually really enjoyed making them and they didn't take long at all. The hardest part was getting the clock piece to fit correctly. I'm not a fan of Star Trek at all, but it turns out that's my favorite one.

Those are really cool - its making me keen to try making a clock but I dunno if I'd be able to figure it out. Did you use a tutorial or a kit or something?

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

Thank you. I did not use a tutorial. I just bought the wood at Hobby Lobby and Michaels, they have the ones with the precut hole in the center to make it nice and easy. Then I decorated it with paint, scrapbook paper, etc, then put the clock piece on which I also got from Michaels. The tough part is deciding which size clock piece to get because there are a few different ones and the first time I bought one that didn't fit, but had no problems exchanging it. It's actually really quite simple.

I live in Australia so I'm not sure what shops would be equivalent to Hobby Lobby and Michaels. I've never actually seen clock parts anywhere so if anyone in Australia knows where to get such things, be sure to let me know. Thanks for replying Lacey
