Vintage Sunburst Clock DIY

I have always wanted a sunburst clock a real vintage one. But they are very costly if you can find one. The newer modern ones can run as high as $300.00.  So I decided to make one for myself. 
And I was able to customize to match my decor'. 

I found this clock at Wal-Mart for $10.00. It has the silvery and coppery colors I was hoping to find. Kind of an industrial look. I purchased wooden dowels from Home Depot. I think I purchased about 17 and cuts them to various lengths. The length or the number is determined by the style you want. I cut 12", 9" and 6" lengths for this pattern. I 'borrowed' my husbands saw and wooden jig. 
I laid the dowels out then used my trusty glue gun. 
 After all the dowels were glued and had set firm - I taped off the clock and spray painted the dowels in a copper finish. 
Total cost for this was about $17.00 - I already had the copper paint.

And the finished clock. 

Maybe I'll make a sunburst mirror next!!
