I needed a clock in my workshop so I would know when it was time to go get dinner. With the help of a coupon I paid less then five dollars for a circular blank and the clock movement. I chose a font styled after the arts & craft period for the numbers. Minute tick marks will be useful for times when I am waiting on stain to sink in and needed fairly accurate timekeeping.
The font for this project was borrowed from a preview page for “P22 Arts & Craft”. Laying out the clock face was more complicated than I would have originally thought. I have included the procedure below. Admittedly it would have been faster and more accurate to lay the clock face out on the computer and transfer it to the wood blank with tracing paper. A fine tipped wood burning tool was used to finalize the design.
