Steps to build a Monabat Kari Desktop Clock (Iranian Wood Carving)
To make this Iranian wood carving desktop clock, I first found pear wood from nature and after the carpentry, I thought about choosing a design for it. Because I wanted to make a clock, So I started designing flowers and bushes on the wood. Next, I cut the designs one by one with wood carving (Monabat Kari) tools. When I carved the original shape of the motifs on the wood, I started cutting parts of the stems. After carving slowly on other parts of the Monabat Kari desktop clock, the flowers and bushes showed more of themselves. To make the wood carving desktop clock look more beautiful, I deepened the circle of the product. It is very difficult to do, but I did it with the patience and need for wood carving.
The product became more beautiful when I worked out the designs. I also put a wooden board under the Monabat Kari desktop clock. On a wooden board made of a pear tree, geometric motifs are drawn and the front side is cut with a fretsaw. For more beauty of the clock screen, I designed and glued the leather.
