    Cigar Box Clock Project

    I had seen these cigar box clocks on eb@y for anywhere from $25-50. I thought to myself, I want one of those!! But wasn't about to fork out that kind of money for one.

    I was discussing this with one of my fellow BOTLs and he said "I want one made out of a VSG Box that he had" He said he would give me another VSG box to make me one out of and a few smokes as payment. DEAL!

    So here is the finished products. I have a a few more boxes to make for a few more friends to. I'll post up pics of those soon.







    If anyone is interested in one, let me know, and maybe we will work out a deal or something on one.

    Very nice. I love beautiful clocks. My dad is a car collector and we took a drill press to a vintage hubcap with similar results for his father's day gift. He loved it. These look every bit as good as his did. Did you freehand them or use a drill press?

    I saw those on ebay and thought the same thing. I never made one, but it's cool to see it done. Enjoy it!

    The zoning commission should approve my plans for the addition, if not I can loose about 3ft off a wall and not worry with them.


    I used just an ordinary cordless drill. I started with a center puch mark and used a few smaller drill bits until i got to the size I needed so I didn't crack or split the wood.

    These look really good. Great job! I will keep this in mind next time I get a box I really like.

    No, not yet.

    Though it was on my mind when I was making these. I may have found a box that will work nicely (CAO Cameroon) but its going to be a clock for another BOTL....

    If I can get my hands on a box similar to that, I will attempt it. I got the parts breakdown. just gotta get off my arse and sit down and plan it all out.

    Nice work - great project! Cigar boxes are so beautiful - it's cool to see someone taking advantage of that.

    No.... thats why I have a cell phone with a digital clock on it!!! Silly!!

    I think next time I will see about getting a darker colored hand for the lighter colored boxes and use the gold on a dark box I'm making (Alec Bradley Family Blend) for the B&M that gives me the boxes. Its going to be a suprize and a nice "thankyou" to them They have gave me alot of free smokes and boxes, its the least I could do beside the "Thanks a bunch" I always tell them after they say don't worry about it after i offer to pay for them.
