Bringing out the beauty in redwood.

I brought home a piece of redwood over the weekend. I took off a thin strip of it, sanded it down and drilled a hole.
It was looking a little dull, so to make it really stand out and bring out the beauty of the wood, I added a clear topcoat. Redwood is really pretty on its own, but once you bring out the colors, it is gorgeous.

I then added a clock mechanism in the back, a few clock numbers on the front, the hands and whaaaalaaaa! It's a redwood clock! 

Have I mentioned lately how much I love to make things from pieces of wood?  

If you are interested in this clock, or maybe you would like me to make you a custom order, please feel free to contact me here or at www.etsy.com/shop/DeerwoodCreekGifts
