Through the Base

I’ve had the idea of passing a pendulum through the base for some time now, but the logistics kept eluding me. This is the end result of many head banging moments. The clock face, pendulum and platform are made of maple, the vertical base support is mahogany. The overall height is approx. 23” and the base is approx. 11” x 6”. Finish is polyurethane.

All comments and constructive criticisms are welcome,

Very nice! Impressive concept.

Gus is right – it looks easy now. That’s a sign of something that is well thought out.

A very interesting piece. Seeing it in still pictures I would bet does it no justice. The lines are simple yet there are fine angles in it. I like it then I saw the base. The base is wonderful. To me the inclusion states that it was once a tree. The inlay in the pendulum is subtle. IMHO
Nice job.

Cal, all of your pieces are exquisite! Extremely imaginative and so perfectly created. What is also really amazing is the individual balance of each piece.

Very nice. Maybe a round face to break up all of the squareness. What do you think?
