Adding to the collection of clocks. This clock was requested by my wife. It is cnc carved but the patterns were all designed and crafted by me. Its only taken me about 4 years to learn 3d modeling to accomplish this. It is a steep learning curve but once you are past the rope and ladder part it is a ton of fun. I didn’t have any correct size hands and I still haven’t ordered the right size. Its on my to do list along with about a few hundred other things.

Crafted in solid walnut.

Update: finally ordered the right size hands for it.

It looks impressive and I find it interesting that it seems to emphasizes the feature of the pendulum over the clock face.
My personal opinion of CNC as wood working is still in limbo. Sort of like many people’s thoughts on hand cut dovetails over machine cut. Your design looks very nice.

Thanks all.

LesB, I know some folks think that cnc is not wood working but there are also folks that think if you use a table saw you are cheating as well. A cnc machine is just a tool among the rest of the tools. There is skill needed to use it proficiently and effectively like any other tool. I took on the additional challenge that after my initial basic learning curve I would make my own patterns. Four years later and a lot of wasted test patterns I can meet most of my carving needs.

Very nice looking clock—the carving work looks great, wherever it came from!
