Wooden clocks have always held a fascination for me and perhaps others. it is one way to create a gift for someone and personalize it so that they know that it was created just for them and not something picked up as an afterthought at some store last minute. As most of you know, were i to work at walmarts for the hours it can take to create one, i could probably give them a gift card of outlandish amounts (lol). But it wouldn’t have the satisfaction for both parties (or at least i hope.)
The first clock i created for my daughter, who is a computer researcher, is of ebony, walnut, paduak and cocobolo. The next, for a cousin who’s a skydiver, is of sucupira, maple and paduak. and the third for an artst friend, is of walnut and ash. i hope they enjoy them as much as I did in the creation.
