Walnut and spalted sycamore, satin polyurathane finish.

I made this clock a while ago. This is one of thirty something clocks I’ve made.
Since my hobby is collecting clocks, I’ve put more than 70 clocks (no walls without
clocks). Actually I don’t exactly know how many in my house.
After buying about twenty clocks, I decided to make it. That was the start
of my woodworking.

Everytime daylight saving time starts and ends, I have to spend more than
an hour to adjust clocks. Twice a year, every year.

  • I just added full range picture and a back view too.
    I believe a good clock must have a nice back side too.
    Mechanicla room is completely hidden and the cover has magnetics.

Very nice job. I want to make something similar and just have not yet decided on a design. You chose nice color and patterns. What does the bottom look like?
