For this beautiful, and far most complicated project this year, I used Walnut for the body, Oak for the feet, and Cherry for the trim. I figured the variation and diversity of wood joined in one project, if used correctly, would really compliment each other. I used a preserving tung oil. For the middle components, such as glass and clock face, I wanted to stay classy. I used clear glass that had been treated to be rough surfaced. This allowed me to use a pendulum. As for the clock face I decided on Roman Numerals for the fact of it is more unique than the several other generic options.
