The clock is a tool that though it may be simple to the day today, despite modern technology, it is still very present in our daily lives and use. Who among us has not in the kitchen a nice watch from the wall? The purpose of this guide is to show, through a series of very simple steps and clear, how you can make with your own hands a wall clock.
The first means to understand the passage of time was founded in the 3rd millennium BC, in China, where it was used the Sundial.
From there onwards you created other methods to study the passage of time, as hourglasses, until the analog clock, a vintage style clock listed on INTERNETAGES, then moving to the Pocket Watch, wrist watch, the one on the display of mobile phones, household appliances, etc.
Nowadays the analog clock is something in use no longer as in the past, since replaced by the various displays that make life easier.
First choose the material to be used for the creation of your clock.
Choose the size, material, prepare the tools and a basis on which to work calmly.
Take the plywood and draw on top of a perfect circle, the size you selected.
Go to record/cut this circle and then praticateci a hole in the Middle, with the drill.
To simplify the work, you will paint just after the creation of this forum.
So take of tempera or acrylic paints and paint it all.
You might pass over the surface a color as a base and then create designs to your liking, with another color.
Let everything dry for one night and the next day you finish the job.
To finish the job we have to mount all remaining pieces i.e. the wheel, the hands, the numbers, the mechanism of movement for quartz watches, etc.
Everything will be available in the appropriate specialty shops selling these contraptions.
Place everything carefully and check that each piece matches up with the other and, if not so, what’s wrong.
Attach a plastic hook on the back of the watch, easily found a little money in hardware store.
Are transparent and sometimes fitted with hooks already of glue but, to be on the safe side, add a little hot glue.
Stick and dry overnight and the next day you can hang your fantastic watch homemade. I wish you a good job now.
