I made this clock in woods class. It was a fun project to make. I used red oak for my material. The glass I used was stained blue and made the clock look very interesting. I finally lathered it in tung oil to finish it off.

Very nice clock. Nice clean, strong lines. Did you work off a set of plans or did you draw up you own?

Does my heart good to see shop classes alive and well, nice work.

Thanks for posting, and thank your teacher, he/she is part of a dying breed.

Do you have access to a shop when you aren’t in school? Hope you do.

Congratulations to you and your classmates, you all did an excellent job. Your choice of marbleized blue glass makes for a very interesting and attractive combination that blends in well with the wood grain. Best of luck in your future woodworking projects.

Awesome job. Great looking project and love the stained glass. It will become a life long addiction that will only give back enjoyment and cool looking pieces of functional art.

Good job! I wish they did projects like this when I was in shop class!
