Here's how...

1 Download and print the clock template. Cut it out. Trace the template onto the wood. Mark the middle point.

2 Clamp the wood to your work surface and cut the circle out with the jigsaw. Drill a hole at the middle point of the circle then sand the edges smooth.

3 In two separate containers, mix about 75ml of Woodoc Water-Borne FLOOR Clear Matt with the Woodoc Colours Blue and Full Moon respectively.

4 Place the template back on the wooden circle and mark where 11 and 5 will be on the clock. Connect the marks with masking tape.

5 Paint the half circle with the Woodoc Colours Blue-mixture; apply two coats, letting the first layer dry before applying the next one. Remove the masking tape once the second coat has dried.

Now mask the area between 3 and 5 o’clock and paint with the Woodoc Colours Full Moon-mixture; apply two coats, letting the first layer dry before applying the next one. Remove the masking tape once the second coat has dried.

Seal the clock face with clear Woodoc Water-Borne Floor Matt; apply three coats, letting each layer dry before applying the next.

8 Use the template to mark where the hours are on the clock face and use the white dots to mark them out. You won’t need dots for 3, 4, 5 and 11 o’clock.

9 From the back, insert the clock mechanism through the hole in the middle and attach the clock hands.
