Our woodworking dealer from Germany created this version of the mustache clock however written in German, we have translated to English in this blog post.
You can build very small or witty gifts with Arbortech tools. Here is the new hipster clock tinker itself. On this page you will find an instruction manual how to use less material and cost a great Mustache (Moustache) can build clock. The material used for the clock an old stair oak was used.
First, a mustache is printed glued to the wood pile and cut with a band saw. Of course you could also form the basis of a Wood Carver Rout, in our case, we have used a band saw.
The Mustache Dial
The mini turbo kit we cut a rectangular hole in the fits the movement. It could use a template, since the recess is not visible later you can mill freehand them too. The front of the clock is also dealt with the mini turbo kit. Only the outer ends are thinner then cut the edges rounded off with the small Schnitzfräser. If the shape of the timber profile of a mustache corresponds to it can be a bit sanded with coarse sandpaper. However, it should not be too smooth grind coarsely ground as it works better him. The Turbo Chisel and a 90 ° chisel from the 5-MultiPart chisel set then some grooves carved into his mustache. To set the clock to color wood stain color mahogany was used. After the stain dry the clock was once again sanded to obtain a Vinitage look.
Finally, the movement is mounted. When you buy a clockwork it are the waves for the pointer as long as possible. Most of the dial thickness is specified in movements. The thicker it may remain the easier it is to produce.
