1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / My "Steampunk" wooden gear clock gift =) on: February 08, 2011 12:59:52 PM
Hey all!

First post here... I've mostly just been intermittently lurking for the past year or however long it's been since I signed up, but I guess that's changed now.  Cheesy  Wound up here again looking for ideas/how to posts for Valentine's Day gifts for the boyfriend, but in the mean time I figured I'd post about something I made him for his birthday, since I'm here.

It's a wooden gear clock, inspired by one we saw at an art gallery on one of our dates.  He loved it, so I tried to recreate something using the same idea.  Here's what I got:  


getting all the gears cut out, and the numbers/letters burned into the wood


all the pieces cut out, just laying stuff out to see what works where


close-up of the hour gear


Not the best pic, but this is the finished project, stained, glued and hung!

 I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out... it's a functional, personal gift, and he loves it.
