The light colored decorative scroll sawed pieces are maple.

The balance of the clock is walnut.

I used a dark walnut stain on the walnut to give the biggest color contrast possible between the light colored maple and the dark colored walnut.

The walnut, maple, clock movement, spindles, and top finial were purchased from also.

I used Nexabond glue to assemble the clock.

To see my trials & tribulations of building this clock (and there were some).......... see my web site.

Absolutely beautiful. Very nice detailed work. I built one with the pendulum a few years back and it has become a favorite in our home. Wish it looked as nice as yours. Well done.
