One of my earlier wood working projects.

Made this one from a plan found in Wood magazine.

About 15 years ago in my Milwaukee Bungalow basement I made three of these. Two were gifts and this one was mine.
Tools used: My old craftsman Table saw, Ryobi 10 inch planer and a Harbor Frieght belt sander.

Lumber came from a Indian Reservation west of Waukesha Wisconsin. Air dried post oak.

Clock insert from Klockit.

Sanded to 400 grit and 0000 steel wool.

Finished with right-out-of-the-can orange shellac.

Nice clock project. I love clocks almost as much as boxes. Your project came out really nice.

So this takes you back to your roots, eh? That’s fun to see. Good looking clock. Puts me in the mind of these clocks that Douglas Bordner posted some time ago.

Dan great clock. I like the lines and the color. Do you remember if the Oak had darkened after being outside as posts?

Neat clock, Dan. I watched your tile on E-Bay. It did real well, didn’t it?

Hey Thos
My ebay auction went pretty good. Guess I’m happy with the price. Paid twenty bucks for the tile.
