A time for hairy oak...

Had a little hairy oak laying around.. it had been through a bush fire and was all burnt…almost all.
Cut a small piece off the bottom and drilled holes in both bits and inserted some clocks…
That is about it…came out quite well … first one with the brass bezel sold straight away at the market yesterday… and had a lot of comments about the blue faced one today…

Great use of what was left, they look very nice. I like the contrast that the blue face has with the wood.

Like the piece. Great idea for a desk clock.

Nice idea to use the partially burned wood as a display. These look great.

You have an eye for transforming wood blemishes into art. Makes me want to take out the blowtorch.
