I made a wall hanging like this awhile ago and it sold before it left the lathe. I liked it so much that I had to make one for my own “braggin” wall. To get this glorious color I put the cherry piece out in the sun and then used a very light coat of UV protectant varnish. I have used the UV protectant stuff for years on purpleheart, cherry & other light reactive woods, and it has helped the wood keep color much longer. (also keep your pieces out of direct sunlight) The center is copper. Hope you enjoy

MonteC : Yes it would be gorgeous as a clock, but the value as an art piece would be cut in half. (the art world is a funny place.)
