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 45
degrees.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, these are grand clocks and you did a nice job on them.
