These pieces of special wood sat in my shop for over a year before I decided what to do with them. They’re on Etsy

The clock faces are about 1-1/2” in diameter, and the tall one is some unknown type of pine, 10” tall, the other a Big Leaf Maple Burl about 6-1/2” x 7” wide.

Comments always welcome!

Barb: That’s some beautiful wood and I’ve always had a time with clocks. Nice looking melding of them both.

Thanks all, I had a little trouble with the white balance on my camera for that top shot, but it really is a very orange wood under the oil treatment.
Here’s the ‘cover shot’ from Etsy Pete is talking about:

Gorgeous Wood! The clock sure makes them fit into our normal, everyday world, but I could enjoy the beauty of the wood without knowing the time. These are sure to be a hit.

with random
