I made this clock from maple and wenge to have a night and day look to it. It is 4 1/8 inches high by 2 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches deep. The upper left cutout is 1 1/2 inch radius, the lower right cutout is 2 1/2 inch radius, and the back pieces are 4 1/8 inch radii, which looked better than a single radius around the back. After finishing with polyurethane, I used the Micro-Mesh sanding system to give it a nice smooth gloss.

Wow! The radius on the back really makes this in my opinion. Takes it from a clock to a truly three dimensional artwork.

It looks much bigger in the photo – I thought it was “mantle clock” size – good illusion and good project!
