Default Boxed Guitar Clock

I made this from poplar and it turned out pretty good. It is a Steve Good project but I had a ball making it. I did have a little trouble getting the box to fit together and with all that sanding I would think the glue spill out \s would be gone, but the ones I could not see showed up but hey that/s ok.. It gives the box an old beat up guitar look but the guitar itself turned out great. This is the very first time I tried making a clock of any kind. I was going to give this to my Dr as he was the one that found the heart problem a few years back so I feel like he had saved my life by refurring me to a heart specialist and then it all got taken care of in Seattle. I haven't yet decoded on what I will do with it yet . I do think my Dr would like it. So far I'm happy with the results of this clock and the box too. Enjoy Fay

Thank you every one. Been busy cleaning up my shop and getting it organized. Think it will stay that way???? Nawwww,,, shoot,, I did find a few drill bits that was missing but not the shank for my cut off wheels for my Dremel. Well going to rest a spell and then go back down to finish up. Not going to do any scrolling today... Thanks again for the kind words.. Fay

Is the neck of that guitar considered FRET WORK? Someone please stop me before I pun again!

Just a Smart A--

I used a wood burning tool to put the frets on it. What I did was plug in the tool and let it get hot and left the pattern piece on it until the tool was hot enough and was able to peel back the pattern until I got to one line and then burned that into the wood and then peel the pattern back to the next line and did the same thing and kept going until it was done and then put the dark finish on it before gluing it on the guitar neck. I also sanded the back of the guitar neck to make it look better. Mom couldn't believe I made this. I'm proud of this little guitar clock and I have a pattern for a mantle clock I want to try. Thanks all for the nice complements on my little clock... And thank you Steve Good for all of those nice patterns! Fay
