Slow go, but getting there. I have sanded the entire front and backside of the door and the entire backside of the clock itself. I have made up my mind to hand sand the entire clock with reservations of the top. The top I may use stripper. I just am not really happy with the job it has done on the back and door. I still have to go along and do quite a bit of sanding behind it. I like to be in control of the level of final inspection. It may be a little more work, but it satisfies me. I think I would like to put something on the wood, (such as a base coat of sorts.) I would like to do this to kind of even-out the stain and get a more even color throughout. Then I want to apply a sealer walnut stain and then a shellac/varnish for shine. I would also like to put a mirror on the backside of the inside of the clock. Along with a few more settle additives to it, originality was gone out the door when I received it, now all upgrades.
My wife is coming along well now and will soon be back at work Which will free me up and give me more time for my projects along with more income to complete more of my goals. She along with you all send our thanks for all the support from the form. Well from here I’ll post a couple of pics as an update. Thank you all and am always open to suggestions as I know I will always have more questions.
