Make yourself a creative and unique Pallet Photo Clock in about an hour. You only need a scrap piece of pallet wood and a clock mechanism.
I want a Pallet Photo Clock! How do I make one?
I wanted this piece to look rustic and aged. I started with a few scrap pieces of wood, and simply glued them together with white glue to give me a rough square shape. I clamped them and let them dry. Next, I cut the edges with a circular saw and sanded it down the way I wanted. I then aged the piece with a Dremel VersaTip. I used a Dremel to do the back carve-out for the clock body and mechanism, as well as to drill through for the clock hands.
I transferred the numbers and photos using the laser printer transfer technique (such as described at photojojo.com). When it was dry, I aged it carefully with sandpaper. I did a final prep for the sealant. I ordered the clock assembly from aliexpress.com for less than 1 Euro. Now I have an adorable, instantly-aged Pallet Photo Clock!
