For this clock I used Oak wood. The species of lumber is the beech family. Some machines I had to use was the radio arm saw to make a rough cut of the wood I needed. I used the planer to make the faces of the wood smooth. Then the edger to make the side straight and even so I could use the table saw to make it 90 degrees. We used the router table to make the top, bottom, and door. We also used a certain route on the table saw to make the main box form of the clock go together. I used a sander to make it nice and smooth. We also had to use the miter saw frequently to make the exact cuts required to make the clock. We used screws and a screw drive to connect the door to the clock. We used hot glue to connect the top, bottom, and middle together as well. I put red oak finish on it and put 2 coats of poly to create this masterpiece.
