These clocks come from old pallets, of course, stain them to your preferred shade. Sand to get the worn, rustic look, this is after decoupaged numbers. You can also use self-adhesive numbers. The clock movements are available on eBay, make sure you order the ones that say 'long shaft', the short ones will not work even in the thinnest pallet pieces. 1 AA battery and you are 'on time'!
