Well I decided it in every wood worker code to build a clock at least once. My father n law is ex Navy and his birthday,, so I decided to make a navy clock. I printed up some pictures on my computer and glued them to a small plank of eastern red cedar, then I gave it a glaze coat finish with epoxy. Not bad I was not happy with the slight staining of the photos on the edges, but practice makes perfect LOL. I found the clock kit at Walmart for $7.00 and gluing the numbers on after the epoxy dries was fun LOL. Thank God for tweezers.
