Another wedding..another clock for the Bride and Groom. This is made from some Red oak that I salvaged from a friends barn. It has a 5” clock face and is finished with Dark Walnut oil and 2 coats of clear Shellac along with a coat of wax. I hope you like it as much as I am hoping the Bride and Groom like it!

Very nice. The clock dial really harmonizes well with the oak body. Where do you buy your clock parts ?
