I had a thick slice of white oak laying around the shop for years waiting for an idea. I have a friend who was working with some thin slices of cherry – holes, bark, swirled grain. Inspired, I went home and looked at the oak. I used a chainsaw to slice it thinner then worked it with a belt sander and RO sander until I had to about a 1/2” and smooth. Put a clock mechanism in it and made the base. Several coats of Watco DO and two coats of wipe on poly. Thanks for the views.

I like end grain use on anything.
Nicely done. Anyone who has cleaned up an end chainsaw cut knows just how much of a job that really was.
