Had a piece of wood (type unknown) from an old cupboard and thought the colour was quite nice. So I squared it up, drilled some holes and added a battery clock movement.

It was something like this that got me started.
I like the modem look, but the arms are from another era.

Thanks for your reply. I agree with your comment about the hands, they are the only ones I have at present but may look into some more modern ones at some point.

I don’t know – rough up the edges and the hands fit perfectly, nice clock

I like it we don’t see much modern stuff here. I just finished a similar clock, I was going to do more work on it but in the end kept it minimal and let the board be the feature, too simple to post. I came about the same way I had a piece of board left over from a stair repair and just likened the look of it. Its going in a modern house so the contrast of the natural wood with the steel and cement of the house will be good. i bought the mechanism on amazon, it was 7.99 you might like the hands on that. It has a red sweep second hand its the Mudder Silence DIY Clock Movement, 11/ 25 Inch Maximum Dial Thickness
