Pallet Wood Clock BI-PLANE was one of the first clocks I ever made from salvaged palletwood, perhaps it could be called my “learning” clock.
This clock is made to order and takes time to complete. Pallet wood has to be stripped, sanded, glued together and dried before the design can be burnt on it.
It is made from four lengths of pallet wood that had been cleaned and sanded. These lengths were then glued together along the edges and clamped for 24 hours.
After 24 hours the clamps were removed and excess glue cleaned away. Then a hole was drilled into the centre so the router could be anchored.
Then the router was used to cut out the circle from glued together planks and then the cut edges were sanded smooth.
Now we are ready to transfer the image from paper onto the wood using graphite paper and tracing it on. Then a pyrography pen was used to burn the image into wood so it becomes permanent. Finally the clock was finished with Danish Oil and Bison wax.
I can make this style of clock with other pictures on it too.
Pallet Wood Clock BI-PLANE measures 28cm diameter and 2cm thick.
