This clock was commissioned by a co-worker. So far, she’s commissioned two clocks, a box and purchased another box which was already made, from me. She’s been a great customer who gives me pretty much complete control of the projects. Other than wanting this to be similar to the Wenge clock I did, she just said to do what I want, which is really nice.
The main body is Oak, sandwiched between two pieces of Ipe. The legs are slightly Spalted Maple with Walnut in the center. The plugs are Spalted Maple and Curly Maple. I wanted the shoulders or legs to have a strong, bold feel and give it some heft. As fun as this was, it’s good to have it done with the projects starting to pile up.

Thanks for taking the time to look and as always, comments/critiques are welcome.

Very nice. Not the same old typical design. Reminds me of the clock character in Beauty And The Beast.

I like it! Great wood selection, color contrast and over-all design. Neat!
