this clock is made of a walnut off fall i had in the scrap bin. I had to reinforce the crack with a butterfly. The face is made of 1/8” steel with a weathered patina.

first welcome to Lj’s. I adore this clock. Quite stunning. The metal “face” and the wood combo is striking.

Love it! Great eye for the character of the wood. Not over stated, and probably a local wood? Inspires me to think and continue with what is available to me.

I really like this design, it has a simple, clean, and modern look. I think I will try something similar with a maple inset rather than the steel. The steel looks great but I have no experience weathering it to that look. Do you need to apply some sort of acid?

How is this piece finished?

Great job, thanks for sharing it and giving me an idea.

Have your say...
