Here is a desk clock that I made for my brother a while back. The base is Brazilian cherry and the body is ambrosia maple. The body is attached to the base with 2 dowels and, of course, some glue. Insert came from my local Woodcraft here in Norfolk. Finish is 3 coats of wipe on poly and about 4 coats of clear paste wax. I am very pleased with how this came out. I like the combination of the woods and the figure in the maple. The Brazilian cherry sure takes a finish nicely, I think. Photography is courtesy of my brother.

Nicely done! Maple is always full of surprises, and one of my favorite woods. The ambrosia streak adds a lot to the design. Also, one can never have too many clocks!
