My style of carving

using a dremel. The picture of what I was started with didn’t have very much carving and maybe some of the pieces was missing or else the voids were in there on purpose..Sometimes my add libbing goes haywire. The clock ended up being about 35 inches long from an 18” in pattern. Again my baby blue stain or dye changes color when applied to maple wood and actually I have about eight different high lighted colors applied after the light blue got the first coats of clear lacquer. I tried something different for the dial and lens and had to come up with tapping some threads in the wood to hold it all together. I ordered a curved round lens from a place in Arizona then had to build it in and the little flower looking ends glued into the middle of the flowers for removing the lens to set work on the hands if needed later…This place carries any diameter lens which was good to find this place for later ordering. The dial I found on line and printed it then enlarged it to go with the size of the clock. Since the dial is covered I used a satin photo paper that is used when printing out pictures from a camera..Most of the time when I make the dials I use 1/8” Baltic Birch plywood and scroll saw out the numbers….I got lazy on this clock and by passed the scrolling numbers. Glad to answer any questions, thanks for looking.

Great work! The asymmetric design makes the piece quite interesting.
