I can’t take credit for doing a lot of work on these because there was not much work to do. I’ll take a little credit for recognizing a use for this maple burl.

I don’t even remember where I got this wood but I know I had to wait about 2 years for it to dry sufficiently.

Of course, the picture can be replaced with another picture.

The finish is spray lacquer.

Hey Rich….

Those really look nice. Where did you get the parts for the clocks? Just curious.

I like it. Haven’t done any clocks, but I could see these making great gifts.

BTW, kudos for just figuring out what to do this beautiful chunk of wood. Easy to stare at them sometimes just trying to figure out where to go with it…
