    I have routered and turned ply and never managed to finish on a layer that's consistent and decent enough to be used for finish/presentation.. maybe me not getting the timber square or the ply quality was crap. But that was too easy to blame for me.,
    The ply was some 3mm packing ply and some 9mm I had left over from a commission. The badge was engraved on a piece of 3mm, drilled in the middle and glued to another 3mm bit that was laser cut as a circle with a 55mm square cut out to seat the mech. The frame was 3 9mm pieces glued together then turned into a rebated frame with any voids filled with thick ca and dust. Another piece was then screwed on the back with a 55mm square cut out as the mech still projected slightly and it needed more room for the hanger.

    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!

    Very nice clock, I like the way it has been done. I would love to do that with the Royal Engineers Badge. Thanks for the idea.
