Wimmer Creations - Clocks & Things

In the past few years, I have made about 400 clocks, stick clocks, boxes, containers, and other things with wood.
This page shows a few things I have made recently.  I use a variety of wood: Poplar, Redwood,
Mahogany, Cherry, Walnut, Fir, Oak, Cedar, Pine, and Tigerwood.

For some of the clocks with big holes for pens & pencils, I put pinto beans in the holes to "hold" the items in place.

Block clocks with handles; 2.5" clock inserts.  Some have holes for pens, pencils, flashlights, etc.

Redwood 4" x 4" x 4".  There was a knot in the top that fell out.  I didn't glue it
back in because it was perfect for a pen or pencil...shown at right.

Tigerwood hinged box 4" x 4" x 5".  I had to drill 7 Forstner bit holes with a 7/8" bit so the
2.25" bit could cut the hole.  The wood is incredibly hard.  This small piece weighs 1.2 lbs.
