Jordan,
That’s really nice!
You’re an accomplished carver, obviously.

Beautiful piece Jordan. I can picture generations down the road setting this up in a nursery for your great grandkids.

That is a great creation. Something to hand down.

I’m not sure about announcing the time in a nursery, Might keep the baby awake. A great gift.

That really is special. I just sat here with my wife and daughter figuring out which nursery rhyme all the carvings went with. Any chance you can post pictures of the top and sides later?

I saw the clock.. moved on… and then put on the brakes—that’s not just a clock… back up…. oh my goodness!!!
oh, the sentiment in the clock design, let alone the gift itself…. and then, thinking of the conversations that will take place throughout history as people look at it and label the different stories and then reminisce about their childhoods.
Superb!!! !

and, of course, you have it signed and dated ..
