Really like the one at the bottom. Zebra wood and Curly Maple? Where do you get your clocks and what size do you like to use? Recently picked up a few from Klockit that seem pretty nice.

Much appreciated comments everyone….It shouldn’t be any problem finishing another 10 clocks since I have until July 3rd before we leave for the show. I plan to display them next to the boxes of the same wood and it might entice someone to buy both as a matching set…might offer a discount to buy boxes and clockses.
Gene…I don’t care for painted wood either but that one was originally maple and the roundover bit caused a lot of burning on the top curves even though I did it in two passes. It would have taken too much time to sand out the burn marks for a low priced item so I just decided to paint it.
Jim…You are correct, it is Zebra and Curly Maple. the clock inserts come from klockit.com. I don’t see a whole lot of variety in clock insert designs from what I was able to find through a brief google search. If these sell as I hope they will I plan to doing more searching for some inserts a bit more unique and different. I know there are other ways to accomplish a different look but for now I like the simplicity and ease of drilling a hole and popping the insert in.

Wow Greg, these clocks are awesome! Such a wide variety from a single template… it’s just amazing. I bet you sell every single one. They look like great gift items too!

Tedster…thanks…! These are not from a single template. I made several that have slight differences. Similar designs but different heights and different base widths. I made a couple of other different looking templates this morning that I have not used yet.

Great job on all, however, the bright red just sits out from the rest

You are a clock building machine! I like the simple clock mechanism as it showcases the wood, not the clock.
And oddly enough, I really like the red one as well.

I hope you find some different inserts that work for you. That brass ring around the insert… Makes me think 80’s floral wallpaper. No offense. The woodwork and finish are excellent.
