This is one of my first woodworking projects outside of a few boxes. It is made with walnut and purple heart, and the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock markers are maple veneer inlays. The hands are made of curley cypress veneer.

The finish is general finishes clear.

fun project, and a good way to learn.

Matt, this is a beautiful clock. I like your wood selection and the corner treatment adds a nice detail to the clock.

Nice job.

Great design. Love the way you reversed the woods in the corners. Gives it more POP!

Keep it up.
