This is a clock I finished today.. made from a piece of cherry. I had this hunk of cherry that was very non-flat, non-straight, and not-square. I planed it but left the edges rough and uneven.. carved several designs into it and cut it into pieces.
Was fairly unhappy with the cherry overall. It’s flaky.. brittle.. pale… I finished it with a mix of caranuba wax and orange oil.. which wow! and then a couple coats of lacquer. The natural edge just has this amazing feel to it.
Will be posting the other clocks over the next while, though I think I’ll be doing a bulk post here because seriously, how many clocks out of cherry do you all need to see. ;)
I’m fond of the wheat design.. I’ve never used it before though.
I put it up on my site and in my shop, so we’ll see.
The carving was done with my CNC sheet router.. before somebody asks :)
