The other son-in-law is less of a Harry Potter fan and more of a Star Wars fan! Thank god, finally some variety!
The Symbol is from Purpleheart, the background piece is Ambrosia Maple, the frame is Tigerwood and there are some Jaktoba scraps that went into the backside of the frame.

So I came up with this Order of the Jedi symbol from the Star Wars universe, and thought I think I can make a nice clock with this!

There were some challenges like the fact that they will be traveling home after the holidays and the clock hands needed to be protected for the trip so this mean enclosing the front of the clock somehow. Acrylic to the rescue!

Pretty happy with this one!

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thank you all for the kind comments! Party bonus, he loved it!
Small correction though, I didn’t come up with the symbol it was from the Star Wars universe I just borrowed the symbol! Not trying to take any undue credit there… lol

As a fan of both Harry Potter and Star Wars I say GREAT JOB! With new sequels/prequels in both series you will be busy for a long time. :)

Thanks for posting and Happy New Year!
