When I saw this project plan in Wood Magazine a year ago, I decided that I had to make it…
Six months later I bought the clock works and intended to invest in Stained Glass tools to create a panel for it.
Well six months after that I (and finances) decided I would buy a tile for it.
The clock is made of Mahogany with Purple Heart accents. The tile is a handmade ceramic tile from Talavera Ceramics in Berkeley, CA. The tile has burgundy color it which is why I chose the Purple Heart for the accent (seen in second pic).
The construction is pretty straight forward. Creating the accents buttons was the most time consuming but well worth it.
The finish is one coat of clear shellac and one heavy coat of water based satin poly.
It ended up a Christmas present for my wife… she love’s i
Thanks for looking.
