This was a fun project that involved one of my favorite hobbies and that's going shopping at the antique store.I'm lucky enough to live close to a large antique mall in Maumee, Ohio and that's where I found this old vintage clock I could upcycle into something new.
What I liked about the clock is the face and the typography of the numbers so I decided to keep that and scrap the rest.I made a new case out of mahogany wood and guitar amp grill cloth.I liked the idea of having the clock offset with a lot of negative space and decided to fill that space with a piggy bank and removable money bag recycled from a Crown Royal sack.
I ended up donating the clock to my local Goodwill donation center in hopes that some stranger will find joy in this find.Inside the clock I left a note stating when it was made and to spread kindness.
I hope you found this build fun as I plan on doing more upcycle projects such as this in the future.As always, be passionate and make something! Tools and Supplies Used Micro Jig Grr-ripperScrewdriver SetDrill PressTablesaw1/8″ PlywoodMahogany WoodGrizzly BandsawDewalt PlanerGrill ClothBand...
