I made this clock out of Leopardwood,Lacewood, & Wenge. I made it from a set of plans from Wood magazine I think it was. I like designs with an Asian look to them and thats why I chose to make this one.

That really is beautiful. Do you mind sharing the finish you applied to the leapardwood? I’ve been experimenting to find a good one myself, but I’ve been struggling. Thanks!

Love it, looks fantastic. Really displays the beauty of the wood with a relatively simple design. Very nice.

It is about as simple a finish as it gets (just how I like it)!!! Its Watco Danish Oil liberally applied with a buffing in between coats with 0000 steel wool. I do this about three or four times until the wood will not take anymore of the oil and give it a final buffing so it has a silky smooth finish.

Thanks for the info. It really does look great. I’ll try a test piece. I’m working with lacewood, but it should be very similar.
