Have you been looking for a new project to do? Try making wooden shadowbox clocks. You can customize the clock to your individual tastes and end up with a one-of-a-kind clock. Shadowboxes come in several different sizes, and any size will do for making a clock. Shadowboxes and clock mechanisms can be found online or at your local craft stores.
Measure and cut the plywood to 1/8 inch smaller than the inside of the shadowbox.
Drill a hole in the center of the plywood for the clock hands.
Stain the plywood if desired. Allow to dry.
Glue the numbers to the plywood where you want the clock face in the correct position.
Attach the clock mechanism to the back of the plywood, directly over the hole in the middle. There will be a small metal rod that will insert into the hole. Attach the clock hands to the clock face onto the metal rod.
Apply a thin strip of wood glue completely around the edge of the plywood on the clock face, and press into the shadowbox. Allow to dry and hang in your favorite place.
