I live in an apartment so I don't have a large workshop area or any large power tools. I do have a dremel and a computer, though, and that opens up a world of possibilities. This clock is a combination of a laser cut skeleton and hand finished details. It becomes the best of both worlds - the parts of the project I would need large tools for are done super efficiently by computers and robots, and I come in for the delicate hand work that it wouldn't make sense for a robot to do.
Step 1: Supplies and Equipment
Wood Veneers - I used ice birch and sapele. You want the kind without a paper backing, that stuff just gets in the way.
Laser Cut 1/8" wood parts (more info in the next step)
All the clamps you can find
A dremel with a drill bit and sanding disc are nice, but not completely necessary
A very sharp utility knife with a surface to cut on
