I'm retired and live in Western Australia in the Jarrah forest, or Swan river mahogany as some called it. I started my working life as a woodwork teacher, and have returned to this as a hobby woodworker in my retirement. I love to make small complicated items of furniture, boxes, and reproduction antique clocks. Secret compartments, marquetry /parquetry and inlay decoration are things I like to include in my projects.

Martin, the latest three clocks that you have just posted are gorgeous workmanship. I also appreciate the design history of each particular clock, especially when they are of English heritage.
