A few years ago we had some sort of clock that broke. Not the clock itself, just what is was in. I can't even remember exactly what it was. At any rate, I saved the clock itself with the thought that someday I might make something for it.
Here's the design I came up with. I used maple and walnut and the clock is suspended from dowels. It was really a pleasure working on this after fussing so much over the Kindle case. As it turned out, this was incredibly simple to make.
