I made this clock in my high school woods class. I started by making my top and bottom pieces out of maple and my middle and body pieces out of walnut. I glued them all together and made my trim pieces out of maple also. I used maple and walnut so there was more of a pop. I used a nail gun to attach the outside trim to the body and glued the inside trim. We let them dry for a few days while we made our clock faces and cut our glass. For the numbers on the clock face, we trimmed out papers with roman numerals on them and used spray adhesive to stick the paper to the plywood face. I placed the clock face and glass pane in their according spots and used silicone to keep them in place. Lasty, I put my clock gears in there and placed on my hour and minutes hands.

I really like that combination you used. As I told one of your classmates, I’ve been to Wahoo and it’s a very nice town.
