How to make an original wall clock with your own hands

How to make an original wall clock with your own hands

Настенные часы уже давно утратили свою прямую функциональность и по большей части перешли в предмет декора интерьера. Если заглянуть в часовые магазины, то можно обнаружить невероятное количество форм и расцветок. Но можно пойти и другим путем — сделать свои собственные настенные часы. Стоит отметить что такие часы с гордость можно будет назвать дизайнерскими, так как вторых таких Вы не найдете. Сегодня Мы как раз предлагаем Вам проект о том, как самим сделать часы.

You will need:

  • a sheet of cork (or any other) tree;
  • grinding paper on wood;
  • hour sets (although you can just disassemble old and unnecessary - if only they worked);
  • Acrylic paint (those colors you want to reflect in the clock);
  • spray paint (for coloring arrows)
  • a hacksaw for wood (saw or jigsaw);
  • drill and drill for wood;
  • pencil;
  • Painting tape;
  • brush;
  • a palette for mixing paints (one-time plate is quite suitable).

Instructions

1. Think over the design of your future hours - shape, pattern, color. It is better to make a few sketches on paper and choose the ones you like.

2. Take the arrows from the watch set (or disassemble the old clock), and then paint them with the spray paint in the desired color. Set them aside and allow the paint to dry.

3. Take a sheet of cork (or any other) tree. Alternatively, you can use a furniture shield (such you can buy in stores selling lumber). On this sheet, draw the selected shape (circle, oval, square, star or other). Then, using a hacksaw on the wood (better jigsaw), cut out this shape and sand the edges with a grinding paper to remove all knots and hiccups.

4. Now, on this form, find the center (well, or the place where you think the arrows should be). At this point, use a drill to make a through hole, according to the size of your clockwork. With grinding paper, remove all knots and hiccups.

6. Mix your paints (or use standard colors) and paint your drawing. Allow time for your watch to dry and apply another 2-3 layer of paint until you reach the desired color. The number of layers depends on the absorbent qualities of the wood.
