Wall clock

The wall clock is made from a piece of elm. I got the idea for the design from a small table clock that I saw during a trip to Helsinki, Finland. It had a face that was almost spherical and the hands were bent to follow the surface closely.

At the time when the clock was made I did not own a lathe so I turned it by setting it up in my rear handle corded drill which was fastened in the workbench.

The finish is carefully buffed bees-wax.
