Picture of Les Paul Guitar Clock
Hey Guys, another wood working project.  This was a quick one that only takes a few hours.  It is a Les Paul shaped clock which I cut out of Aspen wood.  

Hope you guys enjoy the instructable.  

Step 1: Parts Needed

There are a few tools and parts needed:

Tools:
Jigsaw
Drill
Sander
Dremel Tool 
Stain Brush
Hot Glue Gun

Parts:
Aspen Wood
Clock hands set (I picked it up at joanne fabrics)
4 Picks

First I took one of my guitars and laid it down on top of the aspen wood to get the exact dimensions.  It made it a lot easier than having to draw it free hand. 

Next just cut out the guitar shape with the jigsaw but make sure to not press down hard on the face of the guitar.  I ended up giving it a small scuff at the top which I had to sand out.  I would strongly recommend to cut out the guitar upside down.  So any scratches from the jigsaw are on the back of the clock.  To do this make sure you outline the guitar on the wood with your strings down.

After the guitar is sanded you will need to round out the edges around the guitar with the sander.

Do you remember about how much the board of aspen cost? Did you just grab it at Home Depot or Lowes?

It was like 16 bucks at Menards I believe.

Would you ever consider selling something like this? I'd definitely buy this for my boyfriend!

I bet you could find somewhere online that sells these. But if not shoot me a note and I'll make you one.
This is a simple and well built instructable. Thank you for your post!
