Hello Mary.

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.

Adaptive Cutting System

I really like the Adaptive Cutting System (ACS) and hope to buy it soon. My table saw really scares me as I have a bad knee that likes to buckle on me at inopportune times. I can just picture it happening at the table saw and tossing me into the saw…Continue

I really like my K4 pocket hole jig but I had a big cabinet project coming up so I wanted a way to clamp the boards to it faster than the toggle clamp alowed. I had seen some other people make pocket hole jigs with pneumatic cylinders in place of…Continue

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
