A little clock I made for one of the kids. Just an initial test to see how posting project pictures works.

Very pretty clock.

The base looks like walnut. What about the top? (Zebrawood???)

I’d call the top Ambrosia Maple. Did it have small worm holes in the color streaks?

Nice clock.

Hey, I just noticed the title of this project, which answers my previous question.

Spalted maple and walnut clock!

Sorry for the “dumb” question ;^D

That’s a beauty of a clock. Beautiful stock. That is ambrosial maple… the streaking is not from spalting but the remains and tracks of the ambrosia beetle. Makes for a great looking clock.

Ha! You guys are, of course, right. It is Ambrosia, not spalted maple. My Bad. Just threw it up here between cuts and goofed up! Thanks for catching that.

Gorgeous clock and choice of wood. I really like how you ran the grain pattern. It gives the clock character.
