I made one of these last year and it was First prize in our Clubs Exhibition. Everyone wanted to win it and I even got an order for another one from a lady in Victoria.
Fortunately I was able to acquire another piece of burl and these are the result.
Finished with Spray on Lacquer.
Hope you like them and thanks for looking.
C & C Welcome.

Hey Bob yet another skeleton from the shop.
Nice work yet again!
I can see why it was thought by everybody as a possible winner.

That’s some top turning Bob. The clock sets perfectly into the piece. Always wanted to try a piece of that eucalyptus.

This is an extraordinary clock. It is a nice creation and a real eye catcher. It also shows a lot of nice details and fine craftsmanship.

If you don’t mind me asking, where did you get that clock movement/fixture/whatever it’s called?
