My plan was to use two slaps of alder I got when I made my chainsaw license/certification. To make it more interesting I wanted to inverse the growth rings by cutting the two pieces into triangles and reglue them inside out.
First I had to remove the chainsaw marks and after some problems at the lathe I finally got rid of them with my plane.
Unfortunately there was a lot of waste after cutting all pieces on the band saw but maybe I can use it in a future project.
For contrast I also resawed a piece of walnut and glued everything in an alternating pattern together. I chopped up the bark I cut off earlier and reglued it to the clock.
In the end I finished everything with boiled linseed oil. Unfortunately the clock was very dark after that…
Finally I attached the clock mechanics.
Thank you for reading!
