I have got some pieces of tiger wood “gonkalo” and want to use it to show all beauty of this kind of wood. I decide to make simple wall clock for our room with standard “quartz” mechanism.

There are some beautiful woods in Russia that are not available in the U.S.A. Nice showcasing of the grain, the clock was a good idea

Great clock. If you have more of that wood, it would be nothing to knock out a bunch of those for some lucky folks on your Christmas gift list. Nice work!

It is not Russia but Ukraine. This wood really not so avaliable here. I was quite rear case. Somebody ordered that parquet board and that part of wood remained of them
