Great wood for contrast. Nice clean lines. Great piece.

It looks like you are going art deco on us with your latest projects Greg. I like it a lot.

Thank yall very much… it was a nice change of pace. Now I just have to decide what price to put on it.. any suggestions?

Tooch…it has a 6” dial face but only requires a 3 1/4” hole. I already had a forstner bit and a hole saw bit that size. bought them at

Monte.. I agree about the wood combo…some just work well together..

Roger…how about some Art Deco pens? that would be cool…!

Joe… It is a complete insert and just requires the hole..very easy…!

Mike…I like the Art Deco styles…always have but for some reason I never got around to using it in my work until fairly recently.

This is a great looking clock! I like the Art Deco look to it, and the wood combo you used.

Speaking of large-diameter Forstner bits, I’ve made a few desk clocks, and when using a bit that large, you’ve really got to clamp the workpiece down securely to the drill press table, lest the bit fling it across the shop!

Greg, you have posted some very nice work in the past three weeks. Looks like you are gearing up for a run of shows. Nice to see such fine workmanship in a variety of uses. Your router is really getting a workout. Beautiful wood choices too. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Dean…the big bits definitely take a lot of torque when going through hardwoods. I probably over-clamp them…but better safe than a busted knuckle or ruined workpiece…

Al…thanks…I’m having fun making a lot of stock for the shows…it is good to be overstocked and safe and it also keeps the creative juices flowing.
