This was done on the scroll saw. I used Aspen,Walnut and Mahogany. The dimensions are 10 in. high x 10 in. wide x 5 in. deep. It has a 2 3/4 in clock insert. I used lemon oil, shellac, and paste wax for finishing.

Fantastic design and execution on your part : )
Are you going to make more with different wood species ?

Thanks guys. You sure know to make a person feel good. Dusty56, I could see another clock like this with a reversed colour scheme, though I feel that the center part with light wood really works well. If I sell this one, I might try purple heart insteas of aspen, etc.
Thanks again.

That’s excellent! A really interesting piece of work to look at just for the sake of it, plus it tells the time.
