My inspiration for this was the flow of time combined with a Bald Cypress tree with fluid curves which can comfortably live in water.

Thanks for the reply dale, i did a search and it doesn’t look like cypress.
The italian cypress trees do not have the right size diameter trunk for a slab of this size.
My wall clock has approximately 24” DIA

Nice clock.

I’d think Cypress from the USA

Great looking clock! Like the color and its awesome shape! Very different. The 2nd time is for? I’m guessing Zulu aka Greenwich time? No not the Connecticut one LOL
