Repurposed Domino Clock

Take 1 set of antique wooden dominoes... add in a thrifted cutting board from the resale shop... put them together and insert a clock kit from the craft store... create a unique, one-of-a-kind wall clock that decorates a room as much as it tells time. Who's up for a good ?
First, gather some old dominoes. Wooden ones are my favorite!
And then hit the thrift store and find yourself an old cheese board, cutting board, or other wooden backdrop for your clock.
After cleaning it (and possibly a light oiling to make the wood shine), drill a hole in the center for your clock kit.
Then, simply glue on the dominoes so that they represent the numbers/hours on a clock face!
Attach your clock kit (available at most craft stores or woodworking stores) by following the really simple instructions.
Add a hanger to the back once you know where your "12" is and set the clock in motion! It's the perfect wall clock for a game room, den, man cave, or home office. Makes for a great DIY holiday gift, too!
