I had to throw on my instructables shirt to get the juices flowing!! And did it worked I wanted to make a unique clock that I have not seen. my son watches a lot of YouTube videos of people playing this game bendy and the ink machine so i thought i would use that as an idea to get inspired.
i hope you enjoy this instrutable
Step 1: Tools and Material
- tape measure
- brad nail gun
- cricut cutter
- kreg jig
- 3/4 inch plywood
- 1x4 oak optional you could use the plywood
- 1/4 ply
- brad nails
Step 2: Design
I used a flexible scrap piece of wood to draw the angles. I place nails along the arch i wanted and used a sharpie to draw the shape used a bucket for the outline of the head.
Step 3: Cut Out the Shape
Using a jig saw to cut out the outline then drilled a 3/8 hole in the corners of each of the inside cut out to allow the jigsaw to move freely.
Step 4: Cut Out the Back
I wanted to make this a special piece so i cut off the arms head and feet and set them a side for later i then trace the outside of the template to another piece of plywood.
next i screwed them together and sanded down any imperfections and made both side the same.
Step 5: Cut the Shelves and Supports
I used the scrap pieces of the 3/4" plywood for the shelves and the supports. I then cut them at 6" using the chop saw and the table saw.
Step 6: Put on the Sides
I added glue to the and place the oversized piece of 1/4" plywood on top and clamped it down.
the first piece went on like a dream the second piece i was not so lucky it broke but i went along with it gluing and clamping and it turned out not to be a big deal can barley see the imperfection.
Step 7: Add the Details
So my plan is to paint the plywood and use a clear finish on the oak to make it pop!
- using the jig saw to clean the edges off from the over hang.
I had some oak wood left over from another project. i cut the top pieces with a slight over hang of the top.
i used the jointer to get the wood to match up glued and clamped the 3 pieces together .
Next i traces and cut out the feet using the kreg jig i attached the feet to the plywood.
I also traced out the arms in oak and cut them out using the jigsaw.
Step 8: Sand and Prep for Paint
Sand using a low grit like 60 or 80 and working up to 120 for the painted areas and 320 for the poly
Step 9: Cricut
Iused the cricut cutter to make the face. Bendy my sons favorite character!
Step 10: Paint and Stain
I used black paint and clear satin polyurethane.
Step 11: Assembled
Now that everything is painted and stained time to put everything together. I also printed the bow tie made for a great finish.
Step 12: I Love Instructables
This project would have never happened if it wasn't for the contest I dug deep and seen my intructables tee shirt and was inspired to challenge myself .
