My wife asked if I would make her co-worker a gift for her 30 years of service to her work. Her co-worker has been partial to the clocks I’ve made in the past, so this is what I came up with. I wanted something a little different than my previous one’s and it ended up a lot different. Not sure if that’s good or bad, but she loved it and that’s what matters.
The main body is made of spalted maple and the legs are maple sandwiched between some figured Walnut that a co-worker was nice enough to give me. The base is quartersawn Lacewood. Her last name begins with “E” so I made that using some Purpleheart and Blackwood plugs. I think the most difficult part was shaping the two legs to be symmetrical, or close to it anyway.
Its been awhile since I’ve been able to post anything and glad to be back. Hopefully things will slow down a bit so I can get some shop time. I apologize for the quality of the photos, was in a rush. Thanks for looking and any and all comments/critiques are welcome. Thanks again…
