I made these as Christmas gifts for several of our good friends here at home. The woods are Walnut and “Firewood pile” burl, cut from some logs I cut into boards a couple of years ago. The bases are made of Sycamore, with really nice figure in the wood. I did inlay Bisbee turquoise into 2 of the clocks.
I had a lot of fun building these, and the small pieces made it more difficult for joinery, but I was able to get them done. Finish is 3 coats of Tung Oil to bring out the grain patterns, and 2 coats of briwax on top. Thanks for looking!
