Project Information

I just finished this clock to give as a gift. I made it from QS Red Oak. The finish is the same I used for the Morris Chair and Chest of Drawers. Water based analine dye, shellac, mahogony gel, and 3 more coats of shellac. I printed the clockface out and mounted it to a 1/4" board and covered it with 3 coats of spray on poly.

Beautiful Clock! I would be terrified to try a spray finish.

The finish is not sprayed. Only the clock face. The clock itself is rubbed on shellac.

Wonderful clock - it is clever in the way it looks a lot deeper than it is.

VERY nice. Excellent finish, selection, and positioning of woods. Where did you find the clock face for printing? It is great. bbqKing.

I know this was a while back, but would you happen to have the computer file for the clock face. We do clocks in our freshman class, and that is the most annoying thing about clocks is the hardware and dial/face costs. This would knock $5-10 off each project.
thanks

Alongiron,

I purchased some parchment printer paper from my local office supply store and printed it out on my home computer & printer.
