Making a Repurposed Clock Table

4:30:00 AM

Every once in a while I decide to clean out my basement.

The basement is my workshop and it collects a LOT of stuff.

Today as I started a pile of things I was giving to Goodwill, it struck me.

A broken table and old clock that didn't work....


And so my evening journey began...

Step one was to open up the back of the clock and remove the mechanism.  

I glued down the clock hands to say 5:00... it sounded like a good time to me and after all it is 5:00 somewhere!

I removed the broken table top, the base was perfect for what I was thinking.

I attached the base to a longer piece of wood that fit inside the back of the clock for stability then painted the bottom of the table black.

I used wood glue and screws to assemble all the pieces. 

I used FUSION MINERAL PAINT in coal black to paint the table then left it to dry overnight.

And now the clock and the broken table will not be going to Goodwill.

The new clock table is going straight to my shop.
