It’s a cherry clock, with 8 turned columns, 20” veneered cylinder. It’s going to be pretty cool once its all done. I’m just making some small final adjustments/mounting the works. I fit it all together the other day and, its just shy of 7 ft tall. I will have some pictures up once competitions start and possible before.

Very interesting design, I too am looking forward to some more in-progress pictures of it.
And of course some finals as well.

Clocks are cool, they are how I originally got exposed to woodworking. Helping my Dad build the clock everyday after shcool was part of the fun! I’ve helped my dad build several clocks from kits and one day I’m gonna build one from scratch as a tribute to him! I know he would’ve liked that.
