One More Clock

I recently finished this commissioned clock for a coworker. She really liked the clock I made for my parents and wanted one similar, so this is what I came up with. I wanted to do something a bit different for the base and make it look like it was floating or balancing.

The woods used are Tiger Maple, Wenge, African Mahogany, Padauk and Zebrawood. I bought the clock face from klockit.com. She was very pleased with it, so I was happy. As always, any comments/critiques welcome. Thanks for looking…

Very interesting and different, in a good way.

Sort of reminds me of the day and night watches where you have a sun on the dial during the day, and a moon at night, representing the AM/PM times.

Something only a blockhead could come up with, right?. What is the source for the works? I like your creative approach to a time honored craft, clockmaking. Pun intended

Nice clock design and work Brad. I like the play of the different colors and it’s originality.

Thanks for the comments guys.

@ Dr. Ken- I bought the clock face from Klockit.com. There is a link at the top. It’s a 3-1/2” face, but they have many different sizes and styles as well.
