Maple Clock

I milled a huge piece of maple last summer. I got two big cross cut slabs out of it. I also got an assortment of smaller pieces from the two ends. One of these leftover pieces was about the right size to make a clock face. I wood turned a place for the clock to go in this piece of maple. I liked the idea that the hands of the clock had been on this piece of maple for a very long time and had worn circles into the wood. I sanded the outer part of the face on the disk sander. I had to make a space for the clock works on the back to mount the clock.

  1. Because it was so thin it was not very heavy, so the off centered-ness was not as bad as it looked. That said I remember it vibrating the lathe above 400 rpm so I kept it around 300 (I don't remember specifically), somewhat slow for a balanced piece at this size.

  2. I wondered what interval to use when shooting a clock with a second hand. I picked 7 seconds, hoping to catch the second hand going around, but it just makes it look crazy. I thought 61 second would make the minuet and second hand move at the same speed. I will have to try your suggestion, I like your boot in the snow video.
