Purchase a Clock Insert

Purchase the clock insert prior to cutting this project. Below is a link to the clock insert that I used. It requires a recess that is 2.375" in diameter and about .6" deep. Adjust the diameter and cutting depth of the circle object in EASEL to fit your clock insert.


Get Carving!

60 minutes

This project requires a through-cut, so I recommend placing a sacrificial board under the workpiece if you do not wish to cut into your waste board. Clamp the material down, check your settings, and carve your Guitar Clock!

Also, enjoy the video overview of my X-Carve workstation and my first project, the Guitar Clock!

That is pretty cool bro! I will have to make one, but with the neck of the guitar too!

John Tyrone, here. How do you change the circumference of circle for clock in Easel? I have the clock from Hobby Lobby but the cut out area is too large. Or can it be downloaded into V-cave Pro?

@John Tyrone - You click on the circle and type in the new diameter and press Ente, then re-center it.
