Tiger Maple desk clock that I made for my friend ,Peggy, from a cut-off and a spare timepiece that I had in stock. I beveled the bottom to 5 degrees so the clock face is tilted slightly upwards for easy viewing : )
Hand rubbed finish is Bush Oil .

Comments and critiques are welcome as always : )

Lots of nice detail….

This is a great little idea. Good way to use up cutoffs, that’s for sure.

The 5-degree bevel for viewing purposes was also a subtle, but nice touch.

And of course, you’ve got to love that maple!

Dusty: A great looking little clock. Nice job on the build. The angle is a nice touch.

Lovely piece and beautiful wood

Strangely took me back 45 years to our first family radio, an Americam AM job with a round dial, which my dad made a new case for.

Thanks for the post and the nostalgia trip

simple and elegant Len, I like it!

ironic enough – I was just thinking about the piece of tiger maple you game me today, and still can’t decide what to use it for that will be worthy :) now I have at least 1 idea
