Introduction: Pallet of Time

This piece of wood was a pallet piece. The pallet wood was a square piece, however we made a 36" diameter circular line and used a jig saw to cut along the line. Once cut, the board was lightly sanded and stain applied. This picture is showing the start of the staining process.

Step 1: Stained and Ready for Top Coat

Picture of the entire board stained. This is now ready to have a top coat added.

Step 2: Adding Embleshments

These pictures show the few embleshments that was used on the clock. The numbers were created out of flashing material. Each piece was cut approximately 1/2 wide and 2 inches long. The metal ring in the middle is a wreath starter - which can be bought at any craft store. Also, the clock parts were purchase at a local Hobby Lobby store. Here I placed it on the board to see how it would all work together.

Step 3: Finished Pallet of Time

You can't see on the side of the clock but I added a trim. The trim is made out of PVC lattice material that you can purchase at your local home builders store. The one I chose was 8' long approximately 2 inches wide and white in color. I painted it to match the paint color of the numbers previously cut out. I also added some metal scrap book clock looking pieces to the front to tie everything together.

This now hangs proudly in my living room for all to see!

Boy do I have an idea for this project!! I'll share whenever I can get it done!

I'm glad you kept the mistake and posted it. People get too anal about mistakes when they are doing something, which, in a lot of cases that's a good thing. But this mistake - it's cute and it is funny and it's funny to see new people look at it and see if they even notice the mistakes. :)

I'm super excited the sparked and idea for a project for you and can't wait to see the results :-)

If I am not mistaken, doesn't 8 come after 7? It looks like you have 5 (V), 6 (VI), 7 (VII), and 8 (XIII). I don't think 8 is XIII. But other then that, nice project,

You are very correct. As you can see when i laid it out it was correct. However when i attached my V it became an X. I noticed it later and we laughed about it. I now keep it this way to see how many people recognize the minor mishap...lol. I personally think it adds to its charm and a cute little seceret. If i were to sell i would changed it to be correct.
Hopefully this made you chuckle too!
Thanks!!

It's Thirteen O'clock somewhere..... :)

yes indeed it is ;). Thank you for enjoying my humor with me...hehehe

This clock is beautiful :)
