This is another clock that I make. Pinned mortise and tenon QSWO, etched and hammered copper face, ceramic tile, water based dye, lacquer and wax finish. I didn’t get as much contrast in the oak on this piece as I would have liked. Thanks for looking!

Nice. It’s almost as if you spent countless hours designing and trying different sized and shaped stiles, rails, tenons, and even the top to get a perfectly balanced product. Your clocks are perfect this way. There’s just enough detail to make it look cool and interesting while not too much detail to make it look gaudy.

Very nice work
