Hi,Thank you all for the kind words. Sorry that the photo clarity of the third clock is lacking-when I made the banding rather than have the center section at 90 degrees I made it at 45degrees.The result,although subtle, when viewed at a side angle shows up as lights and darks,move to the other side and it changed to darks and lights.tom

Tom, these are grand clocks and you did a nice job on them.
