Mahogany, this time I drilled holes into the body to hold pens/pencils, they are drilled at ~30 deg, same jig I built for the wine bottle balancers. Next time I would still drill them as an angle, but drill a smaller hole so the pens don’t hang at such an angle, maybe make them stand a little straighter.

Clock movement is from Klockit.com, 3” mounting diameter, I bought the Forstner bit with the movements.

I did give it a quick sharpening with the hand held diamond ‘file’ and it cut much easier. Not sure if something in the Mahogany caused the bit to dull on the first few I made.
