Turning a Wooden Clock
By John Lucas

For: Beginner Turners


Probably one of the very first projects I turned was a clock. I glued a couple of boards together to get the proper thickness and then turned it. I’ve made quite a few since then and learned a few tricks. I hope to pass these on to you in a few articles. This one will be pretty straight forward turning--nothing fancy--but I will describe different methods of creating dowels to be used as markers.
