Wood choices were great. Very elegant results. What kind of mechanisms?

That is a beautiful clock! The walnut really has beautiful figure.

I’m sure your sister loves it, and displays it in a special place!

Thanks, folks. Yes, the figure is phenomenal. The back and face are book matched from re-saw and are more intricate than the photo can convey. The mechanism & face were ordered (in bulk) for the class from Rockler suppliers and all I know is that they were made in America.
Thanks for looking and commenting

That’s a stunning time piece! The wood is just amazing. Will be a great heirloom piece for sure.
