Introduction: Harley Davidson Clock
Been wanting to make a clock for some time now. I already had the clock piece which I saved from an old ceramic clock.
This piece is made out of 3/4" pine bought from Home Depot.
I sketched out a quick picture of how I wanted it to look like then sprayed the back of the paper with spray adhesive and glued it onto my piece of wood.

Step 1: Basic Design Cut Out With My Scroll Saw.
I used my mastercraft 16" scroll saw to cutout the basic shape.
Step 2: Adding More Pieces
I cutout a circle from the same 3/4" wood. Marked and cutout a hole for the clock piece to sit in. I drilled several holes to look like bolts. Then glued to the back piece with carpenters glue.
Step 3: Adding More Detail
I cutout 2 pieces which will be used for the valve covers. Again, added a few holes for the appearance of bolts.
Step 4: More Detail
I added 4 wooden dowels which look like push rods. 2 smaller wooden pieces down by the clock and glued it all to the back board. It's starting to look like a Harley Engine!
Step 5: Some Fine Detail
I started adding some small pieces of wood which look like the cooling fins on the cylinders. They are simply glued onto the back board and push rods.
Step 6: More Fins
Really slow work adding these cooling fins. But making it look really cool!
Step 7: Almost Done
All cooling fins glued on.
Step 8: Work on the Breather
Just added a circle to raise the breather above the fins.
Step 9: Breather
I decided on a shape and cut it out with my scroll saw.
It won't be glued on until I stain so I can reach the wood under the breather.
Step 10: Breather
I drilled more holes in the breather and the engine case to give more effect.
Step 11: Last Step
I cut out the Letters H D and glued them to the breather.
All that's left to do is stain it with your choice of stain. I'm going with a dark stain.
My instructable don't have many measurements or other specific information. They give you a basic idea of what a person can build in there home in there spare time with basic tools. I used a 16" scroll saw, a drill with various bits and sandpaper. I'm sure you could do the same with a simple jigsaw.
