Default MDF Kitchen wall clock

Just a MDF Wall Clock

Just a NOTE*** the top and bottom parts for the clock are just stacked 3/4" thick MDF, no cove molding needed, just put on the edge and glue them in place.

That looks great Bob I've never really considered MDF for anything except hidden work but after seeing this and George's staining of MDF I'll have to re-think

Pete
I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

Excellent BJ, not just a plain old clock! Looks great Bob. Used your Sommerfield bits there?

I really do like it Bj, but PLEASE tell me, when did you find time, with this and other forums plus a little time to sleep, I don't know how you fitted it in.

Thanks Corey and Harry

Yep, done with the CMT Sommerfeld bit set ,,,it's one that's been in back room on the back burner for a bit, just a cut off scrap part here and a scrap there...
It's the 2nd one I made like this one I just hate to trash can good MDF stock..

Very nice work

And Ditto on MDF
Especially if the look you are after is a smooth painted surface -and there is no underlying reason to use 'solid' wood -- MDF is hard to beat -- and saves a LOT of sanding.

The one who says it can't be done --
Should avoid interrupting
the person doing it.

Thanks DC

The only thing I don't like about MDF is once you cut into it sometimes the
R & S needs a bit more work to get them smooth and clean again..
But I have found a neat tool to take care of that job, it's called a mop
Makes the job easy ..........
