Where I work they are remodeling, I was able to salvage some of the oak door frames, pulled the nails, planed down to 1/2” then cut and put together. It was stained with Minwax Jacobean and finished with low gloss Tung oil. I purposely left saw marks and other defects in the wood as a nod to the woods origin.

That’s a very nice looking clock! I like how you respected the wood’s history, and kept the nail holes and mill marks!
