Introduction: Horned Owl Clock
This is a Horned Owl clock made from one piece of wood and a few misc supplies
Step 1: Supplies
16" X 11" wood
ruler, pencil, paint (I used acrylic) brushes, wood glue, sandpaper
saw. I used a band saw, however, I have done this project with my 2nd-grade students and they use a coping saw.
*optional, wooden car wheels
Step 2: Measure, Mark and Cut
measure 2 " and cut a strip from the bottom edge of wood
next divide and cut that piece into 4 equal blocks (these are the owl's feet)
Draw and cut corners off the top edge of the board. These will be used for the owl's horns.
I also cut the bottom edges slightly to create a curved bottom of the owl's body
SAND all edges of wood pieces.
Step 3: Clock Hole
decide where the clock will be placed and drill a hole.
Step 4: Glue Wood
Using wood glue place the horns on the owl and the front feet.
Step 5: Painting
Design and paint your owl.
I used wooden car wheels for my guy's eyes. This is optional. You paint your clock however you like.
Step 6: Finish
When the paint is dry insert the clock mechanism and glue the back pieces to finish the stand.
insert a battery and you are good to go!
