Mike, I love it! These pictures really show the clock off much better. Also, it’s possible to determine scale. I’m sure that your daughter-in-law will love this one, too.

Great job Mike. I agree with Don that it’s better to see it in human scale. Sure turned out nice. Beautiful piece of wood and beautiful finish. Thanks for reposting it.

Yah Mike in the last picture it goes from the bottom of the tire to the top of the hood. That’s a big burl.

Great job Buddy.

I just had another look at this terrific hunk of wood. Mike, I was thinking that it would easily accommodate a barometer in the top ‘pod’ and a thermometer in to the right of the clock face.

Again, Buddy, nice work!
