Dave’s latest DIY project is all about upcycling an old chopping board into a wooden wall clock. It’s a fairly easy project and the result gives a modern and organic feature to a wall. It’s functional too!

There are two products used for this project. The first one is Xyladecor. a solvent-based, deep penetrating type of stain that combines decorative, water repellent, and wood preserving properties in one. It dries to a silk matte finish and emphasizes the grain, bringing out the natural beauty of any kind of wood. The second product is Hudson Timbercoat, which provides a good abrasion resistance and an elegant finish. Apply at least 2 coats and let it cure for 7 days.
