That came out very nicely! What is the illustration set in the bottom? Made or bought?

NateXThat is an art tile from Motawi Tile Works. http://www.motawi.com/store/results.php?category=5 One of the hardest parts of the project was selecting the tile.

I’ve been playing around with the design making some small tweaks to the basic design. I’m almost done with the 3rd version of this. I posted the other 2 versions. It seems to be a very versatile design.

Yeah, I like the plans and love the tiles. I have thought about making another one w/ different tile. The project was pretty spendy for me, as I used real mahogany and ebony.

How did I miss this? I built several of these a couple years ago. I think they are great. You did a great job on it.

I am looking to build a few of these clocks as Christmas gifts. I assume the tiles are easily changeable / replaceable after final assembly? My thought was to give the clock with seasonal tiles for spring, summer, xmas, etc.
Also, a neat idea I found for anyone interested. You can upload pictures and have them printed on tiles here: https://www.imagesnap.com/ . I must admit I have never ordered a tile from there so I cannot speak to the timeliness or quality but the reviews I have read seem pretty positive. Has anyone ever used something similar.
One more question. The design looks pretty simple and straight forward. About how many hours would you estimate you have in a clock? I would like to build 5 for Christmas, and I am wondering how feasible it is given it is already the 12th of November. Let’s assume I have all the movements and tiles, how many hours / clock would you guess?
