Great set of clocks Len, I love the finish on the Curly. Looks like a coating of glass.

Thank you Everyone for the nice comments : )
The actual clocks were purchased from WoodCraft in W.Springfield MA about 5 years ago. I don’t know if they still carry all of them or not , but I’m sure they would be in their catalog and /or online . The first clock pictured is Solid Brass with a Glass bezel , and the smaller ones are mostly plastic. The Largest one in the Cherry clock is Anodized Aluminum and they also had a complimentary Thermometer at the time.You’ll need a 3&1/4” Forstner bit for these. I purchased one from WoodCraft for $22US at the time and had some difficulty boring into the Cherry with it. I questioned them about it and they told me that I would have to sharpen it myself !!Then they said that my drill press wasn’t turning at the correct RPM for the bit and then it was my feed rate that was incorrect…...long story short is that the chuck on my JET drill press wasn’t gripping the round Forstner bit shaft properly , so I had my Brother who is a Machinist make some flats on the shaft to solve the issue : )
The other clocks use a 1&3/8” Forstner bit.
Thanks again for the comments and questions and to bentlyj for the humor : )
