Simple Clock

Nothing fancy. I had a nice piece of Zebra wood and a clock insert laying around. The hole for the insert was drilled with a 3 1/8” foresterner bit. I cut the riser at a 10 deg. angle so that it would tilt back. I rounded over the top and put about 5 coats of Wipe on Poly for a finish. I put my personalized medallion on top this time so that it would be seen.

Nice grain in that Zebrawood….what did you finish it with ? It looks very rich and has a nice sheen to it : )
I also like the clock face that you chose .

Bill: A great clock.

I like making clocks. They are appreciated by many as a fine gift.

Nice work. I’m thinking of making a clock or two for a club Christmas party door prizes.
