When the edge of the plywood is revealed, typically that means the furniture is not high end one. But sometimes it looks good, so I tried a clock with birch plywood. Clock face is padouk with oak dowels for time.

I think you missed the “could” in hodgepodge’s comment – He means your design has the sort of modern deco look that you can find in some pricey home decor shops. I’ve certainly never seen anything done in that way, and I agree it looks awesome. Great way to use up some scraps of plywood too!
How did you finish the face (which is all plywood “edges”)?

Yes, I missed ‘could’. lolThanks a lot.I always save wood pieces as long as it’s bigger than my hand, so it accumulates real fast. It’s a good way of reducing the heightof wood files that occupy all four corners of my smal shop.

I really like this design. Very unique. Have you considered making a picture frame out of the same style? I think it would look great. Nice work Ryan.

Ryan -The clock is wonderful and as others have commented, looks very sellable if you so wish.I also looked at your other projects – very nice sense of design – simple and elegant. All the clocks have a great look to them – even the little one shown near the plywood clock.Looking forward to seeing your next projects.

Dude, I’m happy somebody besides me recognizes the beauty of good ole plywood.I’ve made several things from plywood and when it’s sanded and has a finish, NOBODY knew it was plywood.This looks super – mind if I steal the idea?
