Breaking from the airplane rocker projects, but staying with a nautical theme, here is a compass rose wall clock. It measures about 34” in diameter and fills a cross space on a high, four window wall. The cardinal direction pointers are walnut and cherry and the intermediate are padauk. Painted baltic plywood provides the supporting frame. It takes an extra moment or two to decide what time it reads (due north is easy, etc.) which makes it somewhat of a novelty.
