Made of 3/4 inch red oak (scrap material) this watch was built from plans in a magazine. The latch and body are stained a golden oak color and the strap is stained a walnut color to resemble walnut wood. A lot of great comments about this watch. I cut everything on the scrollsaw. And while I didn’t have a forstner bit to counter sink the face, I used a hand drill and a bit of tweaking with a hand chisel.
