I recently melted milk jugs and the top of the bottle to make a colorful block material. I began to think about what I could do with it! It was the first idea that I have caught me. A wall clock in vintage style!

Step 1: Start

I started cutting my panel in a nice shape to the band saw. The design was supposed to look like retro signs of these 50 and 60. Think maple coupled with the bright colors of HDPE sorta called.

I thed with holes 1 “at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions.

Step 2: turn

So it was out of the tower and to run my block to get into the circle
This is very well and was a pleasure to work with! I then snuck up on 1 “so that it fits properly in the retro wall clock!

Step 3: Add overlay

Then was the bit tricky! Since you can not stick HDPE timber (the glue can not join) you have to set with metal fasteners.which I did.
I melted and a thin slice of it to hide the screws of view.

This is were things get complicated. The wood burned during the melting process.

But when sanding on burns I was sanding HDPE enough to show the screw. More melting and more sanding, and more melting … it was a vicious circle and I was frustrated!

Step 4: finished

So I did best I could and moved … I drilled carved an opening for the movement of the wall clock, added a poly finish, then call it done.
This is not what I had in my head, but not a horrible project. The next time ? I had just screw in the HDPE in the back and plug the hole with a pin, instead of trying to be smart while …
