This is the third clock I’ve made from this pattern. The other two were made from Quartersawn White Oak but this one, made for my sister in-law, is made from Quartersawn Curly White Oak. I had never seen curly QSWO and had to give it a try. Overall, I like the results although there are always opportunities for improvement.

The finish is pretty basic. First, I sprayed it with Transtint dark mission oak water soluble dye. Then, I mixed General Finishes Java Gel pigment stain with Behlen’s Pore-O-Pac gran filler applying according to the Pore-O-Pac instructions. Finally, I applied three coast of Zinnser’s Amber Shellac. After the shellac cured a few days, I applied two coats of Minwax furniture paste was.

The color of the wood is beautiful. And it is a very clean looking design.

Is the top shelf for a small flower pot, or some other decorative item ?

Almost looks like a meat scale. Or a baby scale, Great looking clock.
