Some more clocks I made while I had some spare time during glue- ups. I got idea from the Woodwhisper video on his web page, Thx Mark.

1. Black walnut with Maple splines and floating clocks base.
2. Paduak with maple splines and Cherry Floating Base.
3. Zebra wood with maple splines and base.

The fourth Pic was one I made for a good Friend for the wood he gave me that was his fathers that has Passed away. God Bless his soul!
I had the plaque made for him to always remember his Father and the wood he gave me!

Thx for looking.

Beautiful Clock, Ken!

The contrasting splines really give them character. I know your friend will cherish your gift, in the memory of his Dad.

Nice job on the clocks, but didn’t the original have the dowels horizontal not vertical?

Bigtiny, I figured being you can spin the clock you can have the dowels either way.
