I’ve noticed a lot of clocks being posted recently, so I figured I would make one too. I used scrap pieces I have collected over the past year. I looked around for some local tile art and while I found some nice examples, they were more than I wanted to pay. I happened to have some granite counter top scrap so I figure why not use that. The top and bottom are leopard wood, the rails are maple, the side pieces are mahogany. The clock is embedded in a piece of lacewood veneered ash. None of the scrap was over 15” long. The granite makes it fairly heavy for a small project. A couple coats of satin Arm A Seal. After I made it I realized the diversity of the lumber.
leopard wood, South America
Maple, North America
