i’ve always wanted to make a shaker wall clock. So I had some left over Cherry wood from a pallet that I had taken home from work and said to myself “lets make a prototype and see what it would look like. I pick up a used clock from Value village for 7 dollars and 4 hinges that cost me 12 dollars from Home Depot The clock that I pick up had a small pendulum that was only 5 inches long so I needed to make one that would fit in the case that I was making. I have some glass in my garage that I will cut for the doors but I’m in no rush.
I have not used any stain on the wood as of yet. I was thinking of just going with tung oil. It will not win any awards but I’m very happy with the out come and for less than 20 bucks I would say that it is the best money that I’ve spent for a wall clock.
update: the clock was finished with 4 coats of tung oil and 3 coats of poly. I did put in the glass
