1  My "Steampunk" wooden gear clock gift =) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by serenity56 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

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.
