Mantle/shelf clock

Originally, this clock was a wall mount my Dad made for my first wife and me way back in 1978. He always hated it because the tacks he used for the numbers weren’t what he wanted and the color (kinda sorta what’s still on the backside – Denver Broncos orange when he did it) really set him off. Up until now, I didn’t have the heart to change anything he did to it. When he passed away, I thought I’d remake it for my Son whose Mom the clock was made for in the first place, and who passed away back in 1999. I didn’t want it to be a hanging clock anymore, so I made a base for it so it could sit on a mantle or a shelf. The base is from Ash and stained with multiple coats of black walnut Deft stain/varnish combo finished with a final 2 coats of Trewax furniture polish. The clock, itself, is a birdseye maple burl my Dad got from a friend in Oregon a long, long time ago. Out of the one burl, he was able to make two more pieces, one for each of my two sisters. It also has multiple coats of black walnut Deft stain/varnish combo finished with 2 coats of Trewax. The clock will be given to my Son on his birthday in April. Hope he likes it. The only thing left to do is add numbers (will find out what my Son wants when the clock is given to him).

Thanks for looking.
