Primary TechniqueWood Crafts

Intermediate

Materials:

  • Krazy Glue 20g Craft No Run Gel with Skin Guard
  • Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Glue
  • Cable spool
  • (6) 1/4" X 1” X 24” poplar boards
  • Clock mechanism
  • 3” metal numbers
  • Wood stain
  • Sand paper
  • Jigsaw
  • Staples

 

Instructions:

  1. Begin by removing the top from the cable spool.
     
  2. Cover the cable spool top with the poplar boards. Adhere the poplar using Elmer’s Carpenter’s Wood Glue and staples.
     
  3. Cut around the edge with the jigsaw and sand the edges for a smooth finish.
     
  4. Flip over and using drill bits, drill holes through the 1/4″ poplar to recreate the holes in the spool (minus the large one in the middle).  The
    larger holes required a 1″ paddle drill bit. Drill a hole in the middle to allow the shaft of the clock mechanism to fit through.
     
  5. Stain the poplar and let dry.
     
  6. Begin arranging the metal numbers and attach them with Krazy Glue®. Set the clock hands to 12:00 and glue those numbers down first.  
  7. Work around the clock, turning the minute hand until the hour hand hits each hour. Glue the remaining numbers down.  
     
  8. Let the glue set and enjoy!

Very easy directions to follow. I just need to find the wood I want to use. It will depend on what room it will be going into. I have dark wood in the living room but light in the kitchen and master bedroom. It may even end up in the bath room. Thanks for sharing.

This is awesome. A clock out of a cable cord. This will make a great gift for housewarming gift. I love how big it is so you can see the time easy. Love the wood look. I love this tutorial because it makes it easy to follow the tutorial. Anyone make one yet?
