I posted this clock on another sight. I built it so the tile can be changed if I get bored with it or if it breaks. The tile sizes are 6” x 6”. Here I’m showing it with several tiles.
The clock is made from QSWO. The tile and clock dial frames are made from mahogany and the faux through tenons are made from ebony as are the G & G screw covers on the top.
The rear panels are solid wood approximately 3/8” thick, are removable and held in place with rare earth magnets. The parts of the clock on my workbench over the full scale drawing I made.
These are photos are of the front and back of where the tile is installed. Hot glue can be put in the holes in the rear and if I change the tile I’ll heat the glue up with a heat gun. I preheat the holes and tile before gluing to insure a good bond. I glued the top and bottom holes only and will use the side holes to help remove the tile if needed. The tulip tile was purchased on line from Zazzle.com and the other tiles were from photos of some of my paintings I sent to a company called Photo Snap. They turn your photos into tiles.
