Cut the wood pieces to sizes indicated and sand as needed. Copy and attach the patterns to the wood using spray adhesive. Bore blade entry holes where needed and begin cutting the design following the solid lines. Also bore the hole that will receive the clock movement using the 1-3/8"-Dia. Forstner bit. Remove the paper patterns and sand off any glue residue.
Finish the pieces. We recommend using a dishpan-type container and dipping the pieces in a penetrating oil or stain. Follow manufacturer's instructions for procedures and drying times. If using plywood, we recommend using two or more colors of wood stain. This will create additional contrast for a more striking effect.
When all pieces are thoroughly dry, apply wood glue to the bottom of the feet of the upright frame to secure it to the base. If you prefer a glossy finish, spray with one to three coats of clear lacquer. Insert the clock and enjoy. ^
