It is time I started making gift items for Christmas. I saw this clock design on Steve Good’s website and liked the unique look of it. It is made of Walnut and Hard Maple and is finished with three coats of high gloss lacquer. The clock insert is 2 3/4” in dia. with a 2 1/2” mounting hole. I ordered the insert online from Klockit . The only modification I did from the original design was to drill a 2 1/2” hole in the maple frame to accommodate access to the back of the clock.

Thanks for looking!!
