This was a quick project I did with my grandson. He wanted to make a clock for his mom’s boyfriend for christmas.
We started with an 8" x 12" piece of 1/8" birch plywood, painted black on one side. We then ran a setting test on it to get the best speed and intensity for taking off the black paint, but not burning the wood too much.
Did a few coats of rattle can lacquer to finish it. (Him bored, watching the lacquer dry )
The finished piece.
