I spent over 2 weeks designing and sketching a clock. When it came time to go to the shop, it took on a life of it’s own and ended up looking nothing like what I had imagined. Woods consist of Walnut for the roof, post and base, Ambrosia maple for the clock face, Maple for the roof ridge board, Cherry for the clock frame and oak for the dowels holding the clock face. Dimensions are: 19”W x 12”H x 6” D.

Thanks for looking,

Cal, what a beautiful clock. Maybe you can build the clock you drew next time. “Sometimes I tell the wood what it wants to be, and sometimes the wood tells me,” has become a mantra in my shop. So, I know what you mean. This has a natural look and enough gentle curves to feel like your work. I miss the birds. Nice to see you back in the shop. Keep boxing (or clocking someone) and keep posting. My haiku in honor of your sculpture and clock that are timely and timeless.

It is a beauty and yes I think it has it’s own life.
Lovely when projects show us where they want to go.
