Made this desk clock for my son who is a keen fan of Pink Floyd; like father like son. Both of us are also keen fans of The Australian Pink Floyd; the worlds best tribute band, we both met the band last year along with Lorelie & Durga McBroom. The clock is made from 12mm ply with the marquetry applied to the front, American Black Walnut background, the whit and coloured veneers are all Sycamore, The pyramid (prism) is Linewood with a black dyed Sycamore base. The back of the clock has a compensating veneer which is Makore. The veneers were all applied to the substrate using PVA adhesive. The clock is finished with 2 coats cellulose sander sealer and 2 spray coats of acrylic lacquer, the word TIME is applied rub down letters before the spray coats are applied.

Looks great but have to say I have no idea who or what Pink Floyd is. Guess I better get busy and do a web search.

welcome my son, welcome to the machine… by the way which ones Pink? excellent.. Also a big fan, my very first concert in 1973 and my last was Momentary Lapse of Reason.. I think that was around 1991.. I also think that the Australian Cover band is one of the best cover bands I have ever seen.. great job on the clock.. Come in here dear boy have a cigar your gonna go far…. Papa

Also my favourite band! I went to the: Roger Waters The Wall concert in Way. I don’t think any concert I ever go to for the rest of my life can top it.

Great idea to incorporate your favorite band into this clock, also make different types of clocks and have been working on a idea myself to use on a Lazy Susan project in the future.(next year)
Pink Floyd has been a huge part of my life as well as the entire family, seen them at Brisbane entertainment Center in 1988 (an assault on the senses) and to this day was the best concert I have ever seen. also seen Roger Waters (The Wall tour at the beginning of the year)
