I have made this clock for my mother-in law who is in her 80th year. The shape and design on the front of the clock is adapted from a design I saw in a book written by Wayne Barton.

Beautiful clock and a really unique design idea.

Eventually, I want to try to make a clock, but I don’t have the courage to take the plunge just yet. :)

Colin, this is a true keepsake. A wonderful adaptation of the design in the Barton book.
