This a maple wall clock with a spalted book-match shop veneer back. It is roughly 9 1/2” x 32”. The door rails decrease in width from the bottom, I wanted to give the lower section more of a grounded effect.

The finish was begun with a honey maple and a touch of walnut dye mixed into water. Teak oil was applied and then a shellac seal coat. The surface was sanded and a van dyke brown glaze was ragged on and wiped down. Next, several coats of WB lacquer was sprayed and the final rubdown with a 1500g pad and wax.
