Very nice looking for scraps. Nice to have a variety in the booth.

Great looking clocks Greg. They should sell well. Padauk is one of my favorite woods.

It’s time to consider changing your avatar. I don’t get why you would use that.

I know… It’s none of my business. Still. Come on, man.

Good looking work as always. What diameter are the inserts and where did you snag them from?

Hey Greg, you’re not just a pretty box maker after all. :-)

Nice time gauges.

There are many clocks made this way, yet you have given them your touch of elegance!

Thank yall…These are extremely fast and easy to make… under an hour each… it will be interesting to see how they sell at the shows… and can also be a good Lagniappe extra to close a sculpted box sale.

Monte & Grizzman…when Carol and I did the first show we had a variety of woodwork in the booth

...including a few clocks…and it got to be a bit much…especially with the sculpted tables that took up a lot of space. We always learn a lot from each show and focus on what sells and what doesn’t…The boxes sold easily and made for an easy decision to eliminate the larger stuff at the shows and focus on boxes…especially since they are much easier to transport. The original clock sold also but sorta got put on the back shelf. Now they should be a good filler for the people looking to spend a smaller amount.

Bill…thanks…how is the new wood score doing? A lot of turning potential.

Dan’UmStyle…I got the clock inserts from klockit.com…they were only about $7 each and cheaper in quantity. If these sell I will start looking into other sources for a variety. they are 3.25” overall with a 2 7/8” hole…I already had this size forstner bit.

Paul…maybe a box with a clock built in?

Art & Thomas…they are just simple and basic designs but they give me a break from the grinder, dust mask and excessive sanding…my wife said I should sculpt some of them but if I do them they would need to sell for a higher amount of $

These look great. I’d like to see a shot of the back (or is it just too boring?).
That Padauk really shines…................
