Listing tools and materials that I have used. Almost anything could be substituted.

Tools:

  • Electric router
  • Saw (any kind, even hand saw)
  • Sander (orbital or eccentric or belt. even hand sanding will work for this small project)
  • Drill

Materials:

  • Plywood
  • Epoxy resin
  • Coloring agent (here mica powder is used)
  • Wood glue
  • Clock movement

I had a few scrap plywood pieces leftover from other projects

Cut plywood to 40mm pieces for targeted 35mm face thickness.

Then glued them together, fastened with clamps and left it dry overnight.

 

The video is self-explaining. Try to do something similar and I am sure you will be surprised how amazing it looks like.

Teaser: 
Make a shiny wall clock from scrap plywood finished with epoxy resin.
Aha! moment: 
How amazing the plywood looks like when finished with epoxy resin. Unfortunately, I am not a good photographer and can't take a photo that will really reflect all the beauty of this clock. But it is amazing. Try to do something similar and I am sure you will be surprised.
Uh-oh! moment: 
Initially, I have planned to apply a couple of polyurethane coats as a finish. You can see it in the video. However, it was a mistake. Plywood unevenly soaks polyurethane before it drys. I gave up after 4th coat and decided to go with epoxy. I had to sand the surface one more time to remove polyurethane excesses.
