Edited to add an updated photo. All it needs now is the clear coat, but my end is done!
My maiden name is Lyon, and after getting my dad a Christmas gift that I then had to return because he bought himself what I’d already bought him, I had to come up with a new last minute idea. Since I’ve only recently begun using a wood burner, I decided I would use my new fun skill and make him something that I knew he didn’t have and no one else would get for him.
I decided to put a lion on the clock. Not only is his last name Lyon, he has a small obsession with the king of beasts.
I wasn’t sure what color he wanted to stain the clock, so I left it unfinished. I also didn’t want the hands to bend, so I kept the clock mechanism separate. He loved it when he opened it, and doesn’t want to stain it at all. He likes the raw look, and only wants to put a clear coat on it. I will add some bars to make the hours around the edge first, and then try to coat it this weekend. I love how this turned out.
