We’ve been having some major snow storms and wind chills reaching -30 that have left us stuck indoors a lot this week. I’m finding myself having a bit of cabin fever and daydreaming of heading up into the mountains to hike. But I’m putting my indoor time to good use and getting a lot of crafting done! I’ve been working on a minimal clock design and my mountain daydreaming inspired me to make a mountain range shaped clock!
Keep reading to see how to make it…
-1/8″ Birch Plywood
-1/4″ Clock Movement Kit (I painted it black)
-Pencil and Ruler
-Belt Sander or Sand paper
-Paint and Paintbrush
-Use the pencil and ruler to draw out the shapes of the mountains you want. Drill two separate sets of mountains – one that is smaller to go on top of the larger one
-Use wood glue along the back of the white mountains and press in place on top of the larger mountains. Put some heavy books on top and let it dry overnight.
-Drill a hole through the mountains where you will want the clock hands to be.
