I made this clock for a client who had these mill cut offs in her garage. She asked me if it was possible to use them to make something rather than throwing them away, so I made this clock. The wood is walnut with a lacquer finish. I left all the edges natural with no sanding or shaping. The clock movement and numerals came from KlockKit.

You’ve given me some great ideas for some similar wood cut-offs that I’ve had for a few years. Thank you very much for posting your awesome project : )
