I haven’t posted any clocks lately so I thought I would show this one that I made for my special lady for Christmas. It is quartersawn white oak with a etched hammered copper face with red paua shell cabachons. Her Name is Rose so I made the pendulum with a Dard Hunter rose design cutout with red slag glass behind. I thought it came out pretty well. She loved it and that is all that matters.

This is a great looking clock. The figure in the oak is fantastic, and your staining and finishing job is great (rare to see on oak). I really like the design and may have to try making one someday.

Spectacular clock! You definitely have a talent for making clocks. Looking forward to your next one!

If you don’t mind—how did you finish this clock? Your other clocks have had a darker finish, and I really like this one.

That is a really special gift. The copper and figured oak are spectacular together!
Such fine craftsmanship, and the Dard Hunter rose motif puts it over the top!

I was just thinking yesterday that I had not seen any of your work lately. This was worth the wait!!
I love the face and pendulum design (as well as the rest of the clock ;)
