This is a Viola Clock that I carved for a friend. The body is Brazilian Mahogany, the neck is Birdseye Maple and Ebony, the chin rest is Black Walnut, and the bow is Rosewood (I cheated and bought a real one).

Fantastic, I like this project. Great job duplicating a viola.

Stunning! And I’ll bet that folks who might see it up close will ask you “Why did you ruin a perfectly good viola?”

Beautiful !

I even thought that you recycled and turned a used viola into a clock. Awesome design and carving!

Hi Tym,
Loved your clock, you have done a great job.
Take it from one who has completed a few clocks – you have given me some new ideas.
All the best – Cundy 56

Wonderful! Did you include a musical movement to play viola music on the hour?
