All I did for this was sand and finish with tung oil (with a lot of elbow grease). It really reminds me of northern lights especially with a bright light.
I often go to Artistic Wood and Tool Supply to look for unusual bits of wood, and this was one of them. I didn’t need to cut it (other than for the clock)—it looked like perfect proportions to me.
I feel guilty about the lack of woodworking that went in to this, but I love it. Most things I make I`m happy if I learned something or just practiced something, and if I can give it away or sell it, life is good. I nearly sold the clock twice before Christmas, but each time I felt so panicky about it leaving me, so I thought it should just come home. It sits in my kitchen and ticks cheerfully at me whenever I go by.
