I made this clock for my Mom’s birthday this year. The material is reclaimed pine that used to be sub-flooring in a house I helped demolish. I got the idea from my old Humanities textbook from college; browsing through the pictures of Greek temple ruins, the idea struck me. The top and bottom plates have a 45* chamfer with a bead at the top. The columns and center plate are just eased over by hand. The finish is Minwax Polyshades “Bombay Mahogany Satin”, three coats. In retrospect, I wish I would have used high gloss to make it a little brighter and to reveal more of the grain and petina. The satin finish seems to hide everything behind the dull glare. The clock piece is from Woodcraft.
