This clock is made from QSWO using some left over pieces from some other projects I work. It has a 4” clock face and is finished with a dark walnut oil and 3 coats of clear Shellac followed by a good rub of paste wax.

I made a similar one in Walnut that has a larger body to it..

Great looking clock. And my apologies for hijacking your post.

I’m maybe over the line here, but I sell an etched metal (brass or copper) version of that dial on Etsy. I’ve posted many of my clocks here, so maybe you can cut me some slack on this. I just know that when I started making clocks a couple years ago, finding an etched dial to match the old mission clocks was impossible. So I started making my own, and now I sell them. I’m under Mt Angel Artisan Copper on Etsy, or message me here.

Have your say...
