I saw somthing like this in a store ($125) and i thought i could approach it in essence. i year or so ago, i hadn’t located my supplies of exotic hardwoods, but had a few pieces and plenty of veneers. So I laminated the veneers together to form a solid looking section and i was off to the races. Unfortuneatly i no longer remember all of the 11 woods that went into it. The solids are walnut top, and cocobolo bottom, with a double layer of cumaru and a single purpleheart fillet. I believe the other sections consist of ash, ebony, maple,european beech and rosewood. Some of them are made up of ten sheets of veneer. A time-consuming way of getting a “LOOK”. the layers can be best seen in the top views I have posted. i would guess that there are approx 50 layers in this small six x three inch clock
Once laminated, i roughed out with a saw and sanded to the final shape.
