I really admire your work. I’m about to start on a clock for my daughter’s upcoming wedding and you continue to inspire me. Hope mine ends up as great as yours are. Thanks for posting.

Thanks LJ’s for the nice compliments.

Festfool- No local supplier. They all dried up. Lane Stanton Vance in Oxnard carry’s some. I think I saw some at Far West Plywood in Northridge not too long ago as well.

Since people are asking about your face, can you also mention if the circular portion is convex. I can’t tell from the photos if it’s flat or not.

The clock face is etched then hammered with a planishing hammer. The round section is convex. Just look up copper etching on the net. You will find all you need to know or better yet check in your area. There are lots of companies that offer that service. There is a small investment and a fair amount of time in making them so it might be cheaper to have someone who is already set up to do it.
