A clock made from old pallets, joined on the rear by pocket holes.

It is really so simple that plans are not needed. But this is roughly what you need to do:
1) Reclaim timber from pallets - ideally different pallets as this allows for different wood and the Danish Oil to give a pleasing affect.
2) Tidy timbers up - I ran them through my cheap and cheerful table saw so that the edges are square and neat for when they are placed together.
3) Use pocket holes to join timbers together. It helps to roughly position them and then to draw the circle on the rear side of the timbers so that you can determine where pocket holes will / will not be needed.
4) Using clamps to keep the timbers aligned and flat (work on a flat surface to keep any bowing of wood to a minimum) secure using the pocket holes. ***Remember to use correct size screws for thickness of timber used***
5) Redraw the circle and cut outing a jigsaw. I made mine at 500mm diameter.
6) Sand down to circle you have drawn to make it neat.
7) Sand surfaces to achieve a nice finish.
8) Apply desired finish. I used ColRon Danish Oil (Georgian Medium Oak colour) - I am in UK, so you may not have that in USA.
9) Attach clock mechanism. I bought a Quart movement online (again from UK, about £11.00).
10) Position hour markings. (Draw a circle and apply a bit of geometry to work out!) I used some sign fittings that I had spare. But you could use anything you like.
11) I position two short lengths of timber on the rear (the clock mechanism would stand proud of the Rea otherwise and the clock would hang oddly) so that I could attach a wire for hanging.
12) Add batteries to the clock mechanism.
That's about it really.
Hope that helps.
This is great. Do you have plans available?

The Kreg Project Center is great by itself, but 2 KPC's are better than 1 when you want to set up a 12 ft. work station in a couple minutes.…

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino.
I have orders for a few dining tables and chairs. I have made one prototype chair, while I have all the tools to make angled…
