I made a batch of the WoodWhisperer design clocks for my sister to sell in the waiting room of her new business. She wanted something interesting to fill some space on the shelves and I jumped at the opportunity. The woods from left to right are: Tornillo and Purpleheart, Walnut and Yellowheart, Spanish Cedar and Poplar, Tigerwood and Marblewood, Tornillo and Zebrawood, Walnut and Padauk. They are all finished with Shellac, sanded up to 2000 grit and then topped with Howard Feed and Wax.

They look great.
I think you will sell all of them and with any luck get some orders.

Thanks Theresa, but I didn’t know how much to charge. It’s one of those things that you can’t compare to similar items really. I think I might have low balled myself. I’ve never sold anything I built so how would you guys go about pricing these?

My default formula is (time + materials) x 1.25. I usually assume $20/hour for time.

Neat clocks. I too, like the blue faced one best.
I like Rich’s default. “Course, at my working pace, each clock would have to sell for $2500.

I think these are great clocks and should move very well for you.
