05/01/2018

YOU WILL NEED:

6 of 12 x 94 x 400mm pine

Wood glue

Clock movement and hands

Printed numerals

Sharpie pen, black, fineline

Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain

TOOLS:

Paintbrush

Clean rags

Round template, approx. 380mm diameter

Tape measure and pencil

Drill / Driver plus 10mm wood bit

Jigsaw and clean-cut blade (or fine-toothed blade for steel)

Buy everything you need for this project at Builders Warehouse or your local Builders store.

 

HERE'S HOW:

1. Stain the individual planks for the clock face. For this project I used Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Vintage Aqua, Bleached Blue, Antique White and Worn Navy - in that order. Follow the instructions on the can for proper application. I like to apply the stain with a paintbrush and then wipe away excess with a clean rag.

2. Use wood glue to secure two planks to the back of the stained board. These will support the front face boards. Leave the glue to dry for a couple of hours.

GOOD TO KNOW: Place something heavy over the top while the glue dries, to make sure the back supports are pressed down onto the front face boards.

3. Use a template to draw a pencil circle outline on the front face boards.

4. Cut out the shape with a jigsaw and clean-cut blade.

GOOD TO KNOW: For extra smooth edges and no chipping I used a steel-cutting blade in the jigsaw.

5. Find the centre of the circle and mark.

6. Use a 10mm wood bit to drill a hole for mounting the clock movement and hands.

7. Insert the clock movement through the back and secure the hands at the front.

GOOD TO KNOW: Apply some wood glue before mounting the clock movement to prevent it from moving around once mounted.

8. For the numerals, I printed these out on my PC printer and then transferred this onto the clock face. Mark the location and double-check the placement.

9. The numerals were then outlined and filled using a black Sharpie pen.
