I made this clock using walnut that I cut down back in the summer of 2012. I gave it to a friend at work for his retirement.

Such a wonderful gift ! I love Walnut and the figure in the top right corner is sweet as well as the touch of sapwood.

Man, I really like it! simple but still elegant and I really love the color of walunt. Could you tell me what the dimensions are and did you make the clock face or did you buy it somewhere? What type of joinery did you use to make the carcass and the door?
