Oak watch scrap wood project

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.

An ideal scrap wood project.

This project used scrap 3/4″ pine boards cut 1″ wide, 1″ long and on a 45 degree miter. The project is 40″ x 40″. I cut all these on the bandsaw.
