My wife wanted a Japanese styled clock to match her décor so I found a similar clock on the net & modified it to suit her needs. The clock I found only used hash marks where the numerals would be. I found characters for Japanese numerals but found that if I used all twelve numbers the clock face would be too busy looking. I used Japanese characters at only the 12, 3, 6 & 9 o’clock positions keeping a simpler less cluttered look. The numerals were hand carved & painted in. I used mahogany to create a frame with a soji screen look & the face of the clock is made of laminated bamboo. I used dark stain on the mahogany & clear coated the clock face.
