A few clocks

Here’s a small archive of a few clocks I’ve made in the past couple of years. The first is from a piece of wood I found from a scrap pile at a woodsmith store. I loved the bark on the side, and used a small piece of cherry for the face. My wife talked me into embedded some beads for the face. My son (13 at the time) helped create the image burned in. He wanted something that looked like a bird or plane flying… but yet simple.

The second clock is simply a maple face with a walnut frame. I then inlayed walnut circles for the face, and then burned in my University’s logos.

The third clock is a design my wife wanted… something a bit more formal, yet somewhat modern, while using some of the beads that she see’s at the craft store.

Simple functional, & tasteful. Too many people over complicate projects.

nice work.
I especially like the first one, simple and complex at the same time.

Really like everything about the first clock and the others are nice as well.

Nice clocks, the first one with the live edge is beautiful.
