An Inside Look of Design Inspirations, Creation & Stories From Klockit's 40 Year History

DIY Fry Pan Clock

We love the idea of a fry pan clock, it would make an excellent DIY gift! The picture below shows the cast iron clock that a very clever Klockit customer designed and built out of an a fry pan.

DIY Fry Pan Clock

Peter Classen is the talented man behind this neat clock. What was once a broken fry pan was made into a beautiful cast iron clock. Why a fry pan? Well, this pan has history – it was Peter’s wife’s great-grandmother’s pan. So for obvious sentimental reasons, Peter decided to save the old fry pan by making a clock out of it. Turns out, it was a perfect addition to their kitchen!

ABOUT PETER:

Peter has been making clocks for over 30 years, chalking his inspiration up to the fascination of the many clocks his grandfather used to own. His background is in industrial arts; Peter was an instructor for 34 years at Foxcroft Academy in Maine, where many of his students made clocks using Klockit materials.

      Hi Barb, one of our long-time customers, Peter Classen, took one of his old cast iron pans and drilled a hole in the center so that the hand shaft of the clock movement could be inserted through to the front from he backside. We do not currently offer a clock plan for this DIY project, but would be happy to help you find the right clock movement if you’re looking to try this project.
