Great design, I like the slats going around the sides with the small tiles in front.

I can’t keep up with my “have to build one of these” list.
I’ve been wanting to make a clock, and this one really looks cool.

Thanks for sharing it.

Now, THAT is a cool looking piece. Like the way the open sides countered the visual heaviness on the tilework.
Good job.

The mosaic effect is cool. Adds a lot of interest.
