about to finish this bandsawn box, a gift to help celebrate our daughter’s 40th birthday

timber is Australian Red Cedar, with perspex glass, the lift off is secured to the base with magnets, the clock is an 8 day Hermle skeleton, the wind up key is attached to the underside of the base with magnets.

thanks for the look!

Very beautiful piece!

Rarely is a project perfect in it’s proportions, ensuring it will be visually pleasing to look at, above and beyond the appeal of quality workmanship.

You have achieved that with this clock!

Well done.
