The design is very unique, but the walnut really makes it!. Awesome figure.

A very nice piece.
Is the main clock piece one piece or 3 pieces glued together.
Did you dowel the clock to the base?

Yeah – I was like a kid in a candy store when I found this figured walnut.. ;-) – Thank you everyone for all the kind words.

The main portion of the clock is three separate pieces. The side pieces fit into a stopped dado, and are mortised into the base. The drawing shows 1/4” dado, and mortise, but I had to adjust mine. I cut the sides out of the same thickness as the middle portion, and they ended up being “about” 5/16 thick… On this one I also did not do the chamfer that is called for… Oh – And I did make the base about 10% larger than called for as I felt it would be top heavy otherwise…
