I decided to try my hand at a couple of clocks. They are very different from each other. The larger “wave” clock is made using cherry and is 10 inches long by about 5 1/2 inches high. I put it on a wenge base that is barely visible but gives it a little more “profile”. The smaller, more contemporary one is made using maple and walnut. I made it in about 30 minutes using some scraps. Of course, that 30 minutes doesn’t count the time finishing it! Both are works in progress in the sense that I would like to improve on the design. I’m not really happy with the clock mechanisms but Dusty56 is recommending that I check out the Seiko mechanism.
