This clock was fashioned out of bookmatched KEVAZINGO (which is the veneer cut from bubinga wood) i sliced consecutive sheets from the same flitch at 60’ angles and bookmatched. Since this clockwas made as a birthday gift for a retired teacher, it is graced with only ONE number: the number THREE (the allimportant number for a teacher as that is the escape hour.)
