It's About Time

How to make a large DIY reclaimed wood clock from an electrical reel
I think it is about time I get around to making a clock.  They have entranced me so often.  At Hobby Lobby I end up standing there admiring for long stretches at a time.  At craft shows I am always frozen staring at the hand painted pieces...It is about time I make my own.  This is just a round-up of some hand-made clocks that caught my eye after a quick google search...

This one is probably my favorite, but I don't have access to huge wooden spools ;0}
This is a great resource for how to make your own clock though.

I like the addition of "Berlin" and a year on this one.  I have seen where they put your last name and maybe wedding year on it.  While my kids have a hard time with the Roman Numerals, I love them!

Uh, call me crazy, but I actually love the look of this one, even without the hands!  It would look cute in my pile of junk corner I have so many antiques displayed in.  May have to make two ;0}

I like the funkyness of this clock, but it isn't quite what I was looking for.

LOvE this!

Skeleton key clock. I could make this with a pallet back…
As a door and key addict, this is perfect!  What a great way to make use of antique keys.

Ugh!  Isn't the metal so cool!?!  Sadly, I have no metalworking skills.

Again with the giant spool.  This is gorgeous.

A rustic windmill clock.
Can't find the actual source for this, but man to I LOvE this!
I saw a giant metal windmill head at a vintage market last year, am still crying inside about not getting to take it home with me.

I haven't been loving the square clocks, but this one is fabulous.

Oh how I LOvE you!

This guy is actually from Pottery Barn.  Love the extra text on the clock.

Why not show off your fabulous taste around the clock? Hang Pier 1’s hand-painted wood and wrought iron Oversize Gray Rustic Wall Clock, and let it keep pace just like you do—stylishly.
This one's only $300 at Pier One ;0}

Pallet clock. Husband made it for me for our first Christmas! Size 3ft diameter.
There is one with the family name on it.  So nice.

This one is funky and cute.  It looks almost like a windmill that was taken apart. 

Large Vintage Wall Clock
From here on out they are all pretty much funky clocks.

Naturally, use a bike tire!  Where can I put this?

Old Turntables retro wall clocks
Record player, yes please!

And this clock for the fabulous wood weave going on.

I can't get enough of these monogram rounds! I'm currently obsessed with them…
This one is not even a clock, but MAN do I love that!  Too bad my last name starts with C.  It has to be the least creative letter to design with.

OK, well, I better go get making!  Hoping to put the wood together today and get some kind of clock created by the weekend.  

Wish me luck!
