These are just a few simple clocks I made for Christmas presents, nothing fancy. I kept them simple, trying to keep each persons tastes in mind and come up with something a bit different for each. It’s always so busy this time of year so it’s difficult for me to get too complicated with anything and hope to have it done on time.
The clock in the second picture is made from quilted Maple and Purpleheart with Black Walnut splines. I took some inspiration from a clock that Karson posted awhile back.
The clock in the third picture is made from Wenge, spalted Maple and Padauk. I was going for an art deco look.
The last clock is Purpleheart and Tennesssee Cedar with a floral pattern clock face. I was going for a simple country, but not too country look.
As always, thanks for looking and any comments/critiques are welcomed.

I like the art deco clock. It reminds me of the classic V8 logo associated with muscle cars.

Very nice clocks. Great use of different wood combo’s. Can’t find a favorite, all three are number one to me.

Its about time!haha I was wondering what our buddy was up to. Glad to see you werent snoozing, idle hands are the Devils tools. All three clocks are great, my favorite is the retro design. Great workmanship and designing skills you have Brad, and the finish looks first class.
The country clock is very cool.
These will be passed down for sure,well done,

Yes Andy, about time. lol
