This was last year’s Christmas project for various relatives. African Mahogany, with dark and light boards selectively chosen for different pieces. The tops are all wildly ribbon figured. About half have ribbon figure on the sides, half don’t.

Great design. Did they get to pick their own?

I made binders one year and everyone picked their own and all were happy.

I don’t have any relatives that i like that much…..just kidding. You gave some VERY nice gifts, everyone should have been quite pleased with your Christmas gifts.

While the timber and design wonderful, I think your choice of clock face really makes the clock. Well done.

I also really like the clock face. Slaphitter, could you share with us which movement, face and hands you purchased from Klockit? Thanks in advance.
