This is my second stab at this design of mine. This time I opted for walnut with a clear poly finish. Same design as before only a little taller and the clock piece is another from Woodcraft. I am much happier with the way the walnut finished as opposed to the polyshades on the pine that I used last time. I really think that I can make this the flagship of my clocks for sale. Any input on this would be of great help.

Nice Clock. I too like the design. Different than most yet attractive. Job well done.

Honest input : #1 You made a tall clock with the timepiece closer to the bottom than the top.

#2 Get away from the poly(plastic) finishes and try Waterlox on your Walnut and Cherry pieces.
You will be amazed at the quality difference in the looks of your pieces : )
Compare the finishes to a clock with a glass crystal versus a plastic crystal. Plastic always looks like plastic.
Overall , I like your basic clock design , but I am just offering you some thoughts if you are going to be selling these. : )
These projects of mine are finished with Waterlox Original : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
