This clock was made with Koa that was discovered in a mill that was abandoned 40+ years ago by two young men. They were hunting on the Big island of Hawaii and discovered this find, The wood that was left has been air drying for all this time, bringing the natural oils to the surface giving the koa a rich color.

Beautiful! I like how you used the split in the wood for the pendulum!

I love the book matched front and how you used the live edge and negative space.

Love it, especially the middle where the pendulum is. Great work.
