Turning a clock with router inlays
By John Lucas

For: Intermediate Turners


In the last article I wrote for More Woodturning Magazine, August 2016 (click here to read the article), I explored making clocks using drilled inserts to mark the clock face. In this article I will show you my method for using the router to add inlays to the clock. I use the router to add inlay to many projects but it is especially nice for clock faces. I will also add a little bandsaw carving on this clock.  I have always been impressed with the way ferns look in the early morning, all curled up. I also like the shapes of snail shells. I wanted to add that kind of shape to this clock to add a little interest and take it away from the normal round clock.
