First of a few clocks ill be posting over the weekend. This one is made from the second ebony wedge sent to me. I liked the compass base so well that this baby sits on MY desk, right under the light so the marvelous grain is lit like an Xmas tree. This ebpny is available from one of our own lumberjocks “bluestingrayboots”. give him an ol’Texas hollar, and he’ll ship you out some real reasonable at that. Another project with his wood employed will hit the “airwaves” shortly. (As soon as the recipient receives it.) All clockfaces and movements in my work were purchased from Klockit. get on their email lists and wait to buy till they offer free shipping.

Yo Mike.. i sliced off the pointy slope of the wedge. Sanded off the bark down to the sapwood and shaped according to the natural growth of the slab. I sanded the face smoothe and drilled out a series of holes in the rough size of the clock, sawed ‘round the holes with a jigsaw, and then smoothed out the hole with a sander drum attached to a drill. nice projects dont have to be complicated, just fun to build and gift. . wood supplied by bluestingrayboots.. Im sure hes got a slab with your name on it.
