A good friend challenged me recently to build him a Knotty Pine Wall clock for his new cabin. He brought me 2-1×4-6’ ; 1-2×10- 4’; and 1-1×6-4’. After playing around with some different options, here is the finished piece. It is held together with mortice and tenon joints. I left the back open and cut some openings in both sides to allow for the chimes to be heard. It is finished with 1 coat of Amber Shellac and 3 coats of clear Shellac. They love it so he and his wife are making supper for us when we deliver the clock this weekend! Merry Christmas Jamie and Tabby!

Awesome looking clock. I just love that knotty pine. I have a 12’ x 16’ room in my house that is lined with 3/4” knotty pine – I keep trying to talk my wife into replacing ith with Sheetrock – so far she isn’t buying it :-) That would be enough knotty pine to last me a lifetime in the shop.

Looks beautiful and what a great design. The knotty pine will look awesome in a cabin.

How did you paint the numbers on the clock face?

Thanks for all the great comments! Lasagna Dinner it is I am told!

I saw some questions on the clockworks…I get all my clock works from www.klockit.com and these types of paper faces are purchased from www.clockprints.com. When I get these faces, I use some spray glue to mount them on s piece of 1/4” hardboard..They have some many different designs and ship really fast.

That is a wonderful clock, Steve. See? Even Humble Pine knows how to be pretty.
