So here is proof that even beginners can make a clock. Its made from alder and black walnut. It’s similar to a lot of the clocks others have posted before but I’m pleased with the results and I suppose thats all that really matters.

Great job! I really like the clock face it fits the wood selections perfectly. Did you print your own or buy it somewhere?

I found an image of a clockface on google and then put it into photoshop to add the affects that I wanted. the face actually turned out better than I thought it would. It’s just a piece of paper that I glued to the wood with wood glue and then when the glue dried I applied three coats of poly to give it some protection.

That’s a fine clock Josh I like the Arts & crafts look the Alder looks a little like Cherry on the photo’s but I like the Walnut inlays it’s a good mix
Good job

Looks great! If I made it I think I’d do the square plugs smaller, but that’s just my preferance. thanks for posting!
