Step 1: Step 1 - Sanding

Picture of Step 1 - Sanding

The first thing to do is find a bit of scrap wood that looks kind of messed up. Surface damage and knocks and scrapes will all add character to this clock, which may make it more attractive and focal. I found an old piece that was lying around which I used as a foundation for centre punching. Using the sander, I neatened it us as much as I could, without eating away at the dents in the surface. I made sure to sand the entire piece before cutting as once they become smaller, it would be more difficult to sand.
