Faux Pocket-Watch 4 by Fandragon Faux Pocket-Watch 4 by Fandragon
I figure I'll probably get up to Faux Pocket-Watch 100-and-something before I get bored with these. You have been warned.

Slightly different design element on this. The little gear-element-thingie on my Steampunk Goggles made me want to try something where the gears are backed by something clear, or maybe even altogether open. I created the main part by drilling a hole in a piece of birds-eye maple, and then cutting indentations to the point where I could glue the gears overlapping each other and (hopefully) keeping them from falling through to the other side. The top is another piece of Purpleheart Figured (still lots of that left) with a thin rod of ebony wood running from one side to the other. Actually the way this is set up you could wear the pendant facing either way.

...I probably should have included a picture of the other side, shouldn't I? Maybe later...

Wow, the carving of the wood and the sanding makes the wood look just as precise as the gears, nice...

Yay! Glad that looked intentional. I had originally planned to cut a groove along the inside edge of the wood and slide the gears partway inside. Aaaaand then I decided that was INSANE and just went for the indents. 'Cause the groove thing would never work. Definitely not. Maybe for the next piece...
