OH wanted to give her siblings something hand-made for Christmas. Sounded like a good idea except I had to do the hand-making. Poured over all my clock patterns and settled on this one. Made from oak and oak ply with mahogany, ash and maple for the accents.

Great clocks. That’s a lot of work no matter how you cut it. (pun intended)

You still must have a lot of hours invested there.

Stunning work.

Thanks for the comments and questions.. lets see if I can answer some of them.

Clocks are approx 17”h x 9”w and 4” deep. Hard to say how much time was involved because they were done over about 6 weeks, a little at a time. I made one just to see how it would look and then cut the others whenever I had a bit of spare time. Probably 8-10 hours each if they were cut individually, that’s just a guess.
OH just informed me this morning that I may have a couple of sales in the offing, if, as Bob Barker would say, “the price is right”. Not sure what they’re looking at but my guess is it’ll be somewhat less than my thoughts. Darn difficult to get people to realize how much work goes into scrolling and that it has to be worth something.
