Mantle Clock



Students will build their own Mantle Clock. It is a great beginning woods project because it uses most, if not all, of the stationary machines in the shop. The project builds on prior knowledge of machine used throughout the school year, making this project a practical evaluation of what students have learned and retained during the year.

Attached are plans, cut list and detail list for students to calculate board footage of their project if desired.
