Waste board finished... at last

With a special thanks to @WillAdams’ post showing his layout plan, I set to putting mine in order. I believe he used a PVC material. I opted to cut 1-1/2, 3, 4 & 6" slats of 3/4" MDF. The only PVC material I could find locally was like $60 for an 11" x 12’ piece used for facia in house construction. I don’t know the exact dimensions of Williams, but mine must be fairly close.

The MDF slats and T-tracs are screwed directly to the original waste board.

The T-tracs are 3/8" high so they sit below the 3/4" MDF and I use a temporary sacrificial waste board under the project.

Now that I had a way to secure something I took on a project I found on the Vectric site…

Part 1…

Part 2…

Part 3…

This is a dry fit of the final project. A little more sanding, a good priming, the addition of the dowel caps and the finish painting and it will be done.

Thanks again William.


Where can I find the clamps you’re using?

Here is the finished clock. The paint used is called “Concrete”. A very rough or coarse black and white speckeled paint over a gray primer.

Totally agree with all comments and congrats on your great project result.
