This rustic Adirondack clock was constructed utilizing pine covered in birch, birch bark, cherry sticks under a pine cone roof. The birch bark is contact cemented on. The corner posts are glued and screwed from the interior. Some of the siding is nailed with fine airplane nails. The pine cone shingles are hot glued. The project was a lot of fun in selecting the appropriate pieces and correct natural defects in the material. The project was finished with polyurethane with the hope of some yellowing over time.

That’s neat. I always liked birch tree growing up.
