My mom paid a craftsman an obscene amount of money to reface her two large oak front doors. He did a great job by putting a fiberglass-backed bronze pattern on the outside face of the double doors. The center has two half circles that appear to be a sun. It has a very Asian look/feel. Anyway, I noticed that the craftsman left a few square feet of the bronze sheet in my mom’s basement. I conveniently “stole” the sheet and made a matching clock for my moms entry hallway. A few people have noticed it and made comments like, “How in the world did you get a clock that matched your doors?” It was my first clock so I was pretty proud of it.
Its made from mahogany with 3/4 inch and 1/4 inch walnut plugs for the numbers. It measures 14 inches in diameter, so its a pretty good size.
Hope you enjoy the project…
