I used Lon Kelley’s idea for a band saw box, cut it into veneers, and used it to make a clock. As an experiment with the band saw it turned out to be an interesting design for me. the finish is 2 coats of Tung oil, 2 coats of poly, and finished off with paste wax. I believe the link for Lon Kelley’s band saw box is wwch.org/Technique/BandSawBoxes.htm.

I like the contrasting look you’ve created using this technique. I can imagine 2-more clock faces here (with shorter arms), all set to different time zones.
