What Customers say:

Thanks to our customers for submitting these wonderful tide clock examples.

 

Brian MacDonald's example: Tide  clocks I made out of roasted curly maple. In order not to cover the beautiful grains, I burned the faces into the wood. They work great!!!

Grodon Leaman's example: The octagon is locally harvested red oak from Nova Scotia then turned on the lathe to true up the circle and create a decorative edge.  The recess for the tide clock mechanism was drilled first with a 3" Forstner bit.  The recess was used to mount the clock face on the lathe using a Oneway chuck.  The clock face was finished with lacquer and Shellawax cream while spinning on the lathe. The image was engraved onto the oak using an Epilogue laser.  Four passes were used to create the depth and definition in the wood.  I was considering painting the laser engraving but decided not.
