Built 15 of these clocks for Christmas Gifts. I’m sure you all get it from some family members “When are you going to build me somthing”. You’d think that would stop them but they always want more, oh well. Body is Mahogany ply,the trim is Mahogany, the tops are all different woods that some I couldn’t even tell you. Take the handle off the top and remove the clock face and you’d have a nice Urn. The cool thing about building a bunch of these is you just glue up a good length of it and just miter it into boxes.

You probably built a prototype? Wondering how much faster to build the group? Where did the clock works come from?

Nice pieces!

Very nice looking clocks! The gold trim and the clock goes really well with the woods and finish. Great gifts indeed!
