I like the wider rails. Did you hang it?

Yes, I just uploaded a picture of it in it’s present position.

I am not really happy with the finish on it. I had intended to do it “shabby chic” to fit in with other furniture but wasn’t confident of the technique when I did it – I’m still not. I might redo it in some kind of real wood one day, this was just an exercise in becoming familiar with my new Kreg pocket hole jig.

My clock mechanism didn’t come with a dial so I made my own.

Yes Shane, it was a bit of an experiment to see if MDF was suitable for furniture making – it is very easy to work with other than the dust – but I was a bit surprised how heavy this turned out – so furniture that would be likely to be moved around is probably not on.
