Learn how to make this easy DIY wood clock with leftover scrap plywood and a wall clock kit. Add a reclaimed pallet wood looks with this detailed tutorial.
STEP 1 – CUT BASE
Draw a circle on the MDF/plywood in the size you like. The common size for a regular wall clock is between 10″ – 16″. You can use anything round like a pot lid or dinner plate to trace.
STEP 2 – PREPARE STRIPS
Rip the pieces of thin plywood/underlayment into 2″ wide strips. I used my BladeRunner X2 for this. You can also use a table saw.
STEP 3 – ATTACH STRIPS
Layout the strips on top of the MDF circle and adjust until you like the design.
STEP 4 – CUT OFF STRIPS
Flip the circle over and cut off the overhanging plywood pieces using a jig saw or scroll saw.
STEP 5 – ADD CLOCK NUMBERS
Add clock numbers. I used a paint pen to write the numbers. You can use stickers or ready-made clock numbers.
