We made a clock in woods class, I made my clock out of red oak, tung oil, and used quarter-inch plywood for the back. We also added clock hands, clock face, and pendulum.

Ooh, I really like that red oak and I love the design of the clock. Thank your teacher and your administrators you have shop class available to you.

Very good. But i see a small “oops”, looks like a bit of sawburn visible in the 3rd picture. Nice work tho. Oak is a nice change from all the walnut and a bit tougher to work so extra degree of difficulty points on that.

Well done. Thank your teacher, then tell him to keep his safety glasses in front of his eyes where they can actually do their job ;)
