The joy of working with Ash lumber. One can get artistically wild if he wishes and all 6 people who received these clocks wanted to know what wonderful wood did I use???

Lew a very small amount of kids water colors on a very narrow brush and before it dries feather it out with your finger.  Don't fret if you use too much color here and there just use 320 sand paper lightly.  I do a few inches at a time and only on one line at a time. Trying to do one section at a time don't work so good..

  Ash is a perfect wood for this and I like to choose the lighter tones of wood.

  Also use one plank in the construction of the box so all the grain lines continues. After I use a solid mixture down in the grain I then keep thinning the color the farther out it goes...the rest of the wood is natural in color with a clear top coat.

  You will figure out if you sand most of the color of of the darkest sections it will leave this area with multiple shades and this is what makes it kinda natural looking. Most all the shading of the grain is finger feathered!!!!285905703_wifeisthestainglasserandIaretheframer.jpg.bdfdcf63977044c6e22eb175969edd40.jpg
