My wife requested a mission style mantel clock for Christmas. The design is a collaboration of what she had in mind, and what I could do. Primary wood is Bubinga, the secondary is mahogany burl veneer. Finished with amber shellac and wax. Clock face from Klockit.

‘tis the season for building wonderful clocks for our brides. And you built a nice one too! Love that mahogany burl too. Great grain in it!
