Another clock I made a couple of years ago in QSWO with blue slag glass panels. I put a light in the back. Small christmas type bulb. I took a thin piece of aluminum and put a curve in it to bounce the light towards the glass. Had a nice effect and no I don’t have a picture of it. I did at one time. If I find it I’ll post it here. Thanks for looking and for all the compliments.

When I first saw the blue glass, I thought, wow – that would be cool to put a light in there. Then, I read your post, and saw that that is what you did. I’ll bet it looks awesome with that light on! Your work is an inspiration to me. Thanks for sharing!

The way you handle wood and wood grain really is inspirational TJ. Just studying your pieces is very instructional. Wonderful as always!

this one is very nice. especially like the blue grill work. This design/shape would make a cool steampunk radio.

I am a beginning clock maker and I was wondering where you obtained that clock dial.
