Plans from Woodsmith, quartz movement and hands (I cut long hands with scissors) from Klockit, qtr-sawn white oak, TransTint Dark Mission Brown stain (1/2 tspn in 1/2 cup distilled water), General Finishes Satin Topcoat (3 coats with light sanding between applications). The tile is smaller than the frame, therefore I painted behind the tile before installing with dark brown paint; eliminated white showing behind the tile. A fun and easy project. The clock face is baltic birch plywood, I didn’t have any hard or soft maple scraps in the woodshop. Oh, the 12, 3, 6, and 9 on the dial are walnut, from scraps!!! Love using up scraps.

The clock is a classic. The frog is a great accent and the finish is well done.

I used the Woodsmith plans to make a wall version of he clock. It was nice of them to make it available free.
