This is a birthday present for a friend. He got his pilots license last year. The pattern is mostly Steve Good's. I simply modified it by adding a clock. I didn't add anything to the pic for scale but the whole thing is 8-9 inches wide.

The base stock is 1" cedar left over from a potting bench project and the cut was 1/8" BB. I had the based extend 1/4" from the cutting creating a 'framed' look. I stained the base with General Finishes - Java and gave the whole thing 3 coats of rattle can lacquer. The clock was from Kockit and 3" quartz.


I'm not nearly as good at cutting as many of you. In particular the letters are pretty marginal but the planes came out I thought. I decided to let my friend decide if he wanted this on a desk/table or hanging so there's a saw tooth hanger and little stands that are doweled but not glued. It sits on a 10° angle.


Thanks for looking. Comments/suggestions welcome.

Great job Berry. Making small clocks is what I like to do best. How did you make the letters and plane? Free hand, template or what? I would like to make one similar to yours.
