A while back I was milling a black walnut log and cut this limb knot off when I was getting it evened up for the first board. I don’t like to throw any walnut away and even thou I thought it was mostly bark I kept it anyway. A little later I peeled the bark off and saw these wonderful wrinkles. I thought since time had done this it only fitting that it become a clock. I had to use a router with a template bit to make the hole since it already had part of a hole and some really hard stuff left from the old limb. I sanded it down being careful to leave the wrinkles and then a couple of coats of teak oil, buffed it a little. I really love teak oil, it’s so easy and it leaves a great finish with that hand rubbed look. Hope ya’ll enjoy it. The pics really don’t do it justice.
