I designed this clock face as well. Body is fishtail oak, side panels are quilted bigleaf maple. Top is air-dried walnut burl. On reflection this much fishtail en masse is about as stylish as a plaid tuxedo, but it was my first clock, and a gift to my wife, who likes it just fine, thanks. It will never see the inside of the shop again. Stains – Campbell Microtones, with a MagnaLac clear coat. The garage and immediate environs smelled like bananas for days.
I have since been won over to the waterborne lacquers. I’m especially fond of Jeff Jewitt’s offering, Oxford Ultima Spray Lacquer.
