D.I.Y. pallet wood clock

Clock.jpeg

Everything I have made has been for personal use or as a gift. Recently my amazing boss asked me to make her a wooden clock to finish off their kitchen/lounge room renovation. Similar to one I made for our home.

 

So working with their new colours and farmhouse style decor I ended up with this result.

 

I included their family name and year they were married as a personal touch.

 

Even though I refused she insisted on paying me for it - so technically my first customer! Best feeling was seeing how happy she was! 

 

First time using oil based stain so had to practice on scrap wood till I was confident enough.

 

Had a few dramas when chipping out a hole for the clock mechanism. Pallet wood was very dry so had a few split and have to re do the process with a new piece.

Thanks for asking the question @bigjr66, as I would have missed seeing this beauty.
Keen to know as well as I'd love to make one for my wife.

Re: D.I.Y. pallet wood clock

Hello @bigjr66 I actually purchased it from Kmart for $19 then modified it. I had done another one where I removed the numbers just had (3,6,9 & 12) but as this was to match a farmhouse/rustic theme I left them on. 
I used U shape staples to attach it to the wood but spray painted them black first so they would blend in. I was able to use the clock as the template by tracing it on the wood so it would fit inside the wooden circle. 

If you need anything else let me know. I have a lot more pics detailing each step if you need ☺️☺️
