    This was an experiment. I’m terrible at drawing or painting, but not bad at creating graphics using a computer. So, I’ve been experimenting with Lazertran inkjet waterslide paper.

    For the time ring, I used shellac over plywood to create a smooth surface and then covered the decal with a couple more coats of shellac. For the bottom frame, I transferred the image to the back side of the glass and sealed it with water based poly.

    I did the profiles on the top and bottom on the router table but the rest was all done with hand tools. The finish is 3 coats of garnet shellac followed by paste wax.

    The Lazertran paper take some experimentation to find out what works. Overall, I figure it came out OK, and I learned how to do better next time.

    That’s really nice, I’m very much interested in the process of how you did the bottom image. Did you use some transparent paper can you give me a little more detail.

    That’s a nice effect on the bottom image. It looks transparent.

    My replies were not posting to this thread so I opened an new thread to discuss the Lazertran paper.

    I have had that happen to me as well once before. Websites are a nightmare.

    Thanks for all the nice comments.

    I wanted it for my office, but my wife appropriated it for the living room. I get the previously made willow clock for my office.
