A friend asked me to make her mother a clock for mother’s day.

The roof is cherry and walnut, clock face is poplar and the base and pillars are maple.

Thanks for looking,

That is really nice, do you have additional pictures of the underside of the roof area to show some additional detail? the design is great.

Unfortunately, I only had a few minutes to take photos before I had to deliver it. This is the best shot from underneath the roof.

I like this, correct me if I’m wrong – Japaneese style. Beautiful design and lines.

Very nice – what is your meaning for “Yamane” in this project?

That is a beautiful clock! I like the roof, and how it shelters the clock. The clock face looks amazing, and I like how you attached it to the structure—simple but elegant!

Thank you all for the compliments!

Majula – Yes, my intention was to give it a Japanese flare. The roof is modeled after a famous torii (gate) in Japan

Makai – Yamane is the name of the recipient

Cal, this is lovely. As all of your projects, this has a delicate, sparse, elegance that invites the eye to search for the defining details like the “rafters” in this project. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Cal, I love this clock. It’s a very creative and beautiful design and you did a wonderful job on it.
