This was a piece of firewood i saved from the pile. it was the crotch of the tree and had interesting shape. I cut it up and shaped it with my homemade milling machine.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. A very nice looking clock, were the hands omitted by accident, or are you makingsome special ones. Now that you have mentioned your homemade milling machine, you will find that most ofus are very curious about homemade tools and want to see how you made yours. Thank you for sharing, andhope you enjoy Lumberjocks.

Thanks for the positive comments everyone. To answer a couple questions I would be more than happy to post my milling machine. If I don’t get it today I will do it tomorrow. This is my first time posting and just joining the site I am a little clumsy working through it but picking it up fast. Gus, yes the hands are off I have a clock kit for it but the hands are so cheap looking I am trying to make wooden ones. I will post more pics of it too.

This is very cool. Almost looks like a shark’s tooth. How big is it? Did you use a finish on it?
I like this a lot. Great job.

Put some teeth on that thing and it would look like a shark eating a clock..Very nice work by the way. I like it.

It is 23” tall and 14” wide at the lowest part of the base. All i have on it for now as a finish is sanding sealer 3 coats. My son said it looked like a shark tooth but the wife said reminds her of a Gnome. Thanks again for thumb up.

Now this is a cool clock! It looks like some creature standing there leaning to one side. Quite an eye catcher for sure! Well done!
