Table Clock

I made this table clock a couple of years ago. It’s made out of tigar maple and Cocobolo.

I think this was the last item I made from Cocobolo, because some people have an alergic reaction to the dust.

I broke out with poison ivy type rash all over my neck, arms etc where ever the dust settled.

Be careful.

Wow really nice looking. I enjoy the contrast in woods and the sculptural qualities. I’ve heard of lots of different reactions to wood. Sorry about yours. Too bad thats beautiful wood.

Neat design… mental note, don’t eat Karson’s clock.

Or make plates/bowls out of cocobolo either.

I really like the design and the woods compliment one another very well.

Karson, this is beautiful. I love the design – looks like the number ‘9’.

What’s the time piecepiece – mechanical or electronic?

Cocobolo is a beautiful wood. Too bad the dust is such an irritant. Interesting shape.

Frank. It is sprayed clear shellac. Thuis was before the days of knowing how to French Polish and using Amber Shellac to bring out the grain before the clear for depth.

Don: The clock mechanism is a $4.00 battery operated job.
