Dan- I had trouble shooting today. Nothing looked good. Must be my mood..I think. The finish really looks much better in person. The rays show up alot more too!

Beautiful clock. I love quartersawn white oak. What stain did you use? It really highlights the flakes.

Beautiful clock – did you use plans, or is it your own design? If plans, where can I get a set of them?

Another great clock, nice wood, don’t see QSWO with that may rays too often.

This is probably my favorite! Stunning. The ginko leaves are a very nice touch. Please share your finish if possible.

Thanks for the great compliments. It is greatly appreciated. I’m sorry I don’t have any plans available and I don’t really use plans. I have a schetch that I use for the design and that’s about it. I guess everyone has their finishes they like to use. I use Homestead Transfast aniline dye stains. I put a dark mission brown on first, sand with 400 grit then apply med. walnut. You have to take the first coat down some to expose the rays. I hand rubbed 4 coats of Formby’s Tung Oil Finish using extra fine steel wool between coats. Finally finished off with Briwax dark brown. There is definitely more work with the water based dyes because it raises the grain but it dries fast and is easy to use. Like I said everyone has their own methods. Thanks for looking!
