Watch for car enthusiasts
To make the original watch, take the tire from the bike. In principle, it is possible to use tires of any diameter, but small children's bicycles are best suited.


Attach the tire to the plywood sheet and circle itOn the circumference. Use a jigsaw to cut a circle, paint it. Find the middle of the circle, make a hole with a drill and insert the clockwork with the arrows. It can be removed from old watches or bought a new one in handicraft shops.


The resulting circle is inserted into the tire, then applyMarkup. You can do this with a usual brush and paint or glue the washers or nuts with liquid nails or glue "Moment". From the piece of wire on the back of the watch, screw the eyelet so that they can be hung on the wall.

Cut out the mirror, its diameter should be equal to the diameter of the tire. Cut the mirror exactly in a circle you will help in a specialized workshop. Insert the mirror into the frame of the tire.

Now put one tire, the second one and fasten them together with a screwdriver and self-tapping screws.


From the plywood jigsaw cut the countertop. It can be round and square. Paint it in the tone of the tires or make a contrasting color. Put on a prepared base of tires and screw it with screws. Slightly drowning hats in plywood, so that the screws can not be seen, cover the holes with putty. When it dries, sand and color in the tone of the countertop.


For puff, one or two tires will be neededDiameter R12 or R13 depending on the desired height. Prepare and paint the tire, from a thick foam rubber, cut out the pillow that would fit tightly into the hole of the tire. Foam with a suitable cloth and insert into the tire. The ottoman is ready.
