I have some 10” table saw blades I want to make wall clocks out of and I want to glue a picture on the blade. My coz. gave me some pictures of large Elk that come around his place in LaPine OR and I want to make the clock for his wood shop. My question is how would I glue or attach the photo to the saw blade and have it stay there? What would be a good finish to apply to keep rust out and protect the face of the clock.

Thank for your help and Merry Christmas all

decupodge? Or epoxy and clear poly over the entire blade. That would seal it to help prevent rust.

Use something like rubber cement to glue the picture. White glue will make it wrinkle very badly.
