I once saw a fellow lj had made a clock like this,and decided i one day would make one too.

Its made in oak&walnut. A funny projekt and i tested my spindelsander on it and it worked great on those curved lines. The rest is made with bandsaw,lathe and my hands :)

Thank you for taking “time” to look :D

It’s very beautiful, Napoleon, and nicely done.

I love these, and when I get the time want to make myself one. Yours turned out great! How much ‘time’ did it take to make?

Is there a plan for one of these? That looks pretty interesting.

An impressive build. Because it’s on a plate does that mean you’ve served your time? Love to see a link to the original.
