Clock No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

This was a project started 4 years ago but saw a large delay when we moved. I was not a carver and this was the longest part of the project. The idea was a clock built in the 1800’s that I thought was great. This is my version built from cherry with walnut accents. This picture was taken before I painted the pendulum and hands to match the dial edge. I entered this in the Iowa State Fair and was awarded Best of Show in woodworking. I was extremely pleased. I am new to this forum and looking forward to viewing all the wonderful projects and learning from others.
