This was my first clock,I liked making it.I got the idea from american woodworker.
I love that tiger maple.Here in chattanooga theres a wood dealer that sells it for the same price has soft maple.The only bad part is that you have to go through all of the soft maple to fine the tiger.Its time well spent @ $3.00 bf vs. about $10.00 bf.Hope you all like it.

Wow Phil! This is just awesome. What a huge project to tackle. How many hours did you have in on this if I may ask? Whatever it was it was time really well spent. It is just beautiful.

Great looking clock. What is the height, it looks to be close to 8’ tall
