Wall clock made on the lathe. Solid base with layered segmented rings. 13-1/2” diameter x 2-1/4” thick. Walnut and soft maple with a purchased digital clock movement. Dyed with Transtinit brown mahogany and sprayed/French polished with shellac. Made a couple years ago and finally took some pics to post.

Very elegant clock, nicely choosen wood combination. I see a little crack on the edge. Was it wood or during turning proces?

I LIKE IT!
At opening the first pic I thought it was a bit dark, but the subsequent pix show it’s not very dark at all.
I also thought at first that the face was bulged out, but pix 3 & 4 show it to actually be bowl shaped.

Neat idea. I’ll hafta stea … OOPS, I mean BORROW this idea !
