I saw somewhere here on the forum that someone can’t remember who, had decided to make several for christmas presents and thought that might be the answer for me to get a few gifts together quickly also! The first was from Brazilian Cherry-while the four that followed were from white oak stained with a walnut min-wax product and finished with tounge oil. Three made it under the tree in time while the last two were shipped via ups today. Thank goodness this is a hobby and not a way to make a living! Plans were from a Wood magazine.

Very nice clocks. To my way of thinking, you can’t have too many clocks and they always make nice gifts.

Nice clocks, bet they were really appreciated by the recipients. Have any pictures of the side profile?

TY Folks for taking the time to view and comment on the clocks. cajunpen, sorry I didn’t take any pics’ of the clocks from the side. I’ve given them all away now so I can’t take another now or I’d take one more and show it to you. Seems I’m always in too much of a hurry to get things done. cajunpen, did you recently make several clocks also? Thanks again to all those who commented.
