My daughter and son-in-law are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary in November. I wanted to give them something that was special, unique, and not store bought so I designed this clock just for them.
The wedding bands have their names, wedding date, and 25th anniversary date inscribed. The ring around the clock has the names of their three children. I relieved the edges of all the fretwork to soften the look. The top and base are made of walnut, the body is butternut (I think), and the fretwork is maple. I finished it with three coats of high gloss lacquer. I am pleased with the results I fiddled with the design for quite some time before I was satisfied with it.
I hope that they will enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed designing and making it for them.
Thanks for looking!!
