Lumber pile is currently too small for any big projects, so I pulled out some scraps and a spare clock movement and kept my hands busy for another day. Padauk and maple with a lacquer finish. Klockit movement. Very simple project, but I hope someone likes it.

I like the clock especially the inlay. How much does it weigh? I know that maple is heavy. I havent ever used padauk before, but I thought it was heavy also.

Thanks to all for the kind comments.
Tim, I can’t give you an accurate weight but my guess is no more than 1 pound. Hangs on the wall with a 1” screw.
