Here are two veneer clocks that a made a while back. Basically you make a curvy cut in a mold out of a 2 X 4 with a bandsaw and put packing tape on the inside of the mold. Then you take 4 layers of veneer and glue them together and let dry. Once dry you cut the veneer at an angle and drill a hole in the one end for a brass rod and place it on a base and of course drill out for the clock. Thanks for looking…

The veneer pieces (minus the clocks and bases) remind me of flying pennants.
Veneer is a lot of fun to experiment and play around with …. but then, ... you already know that. :-)

I like them.

I really enjoy clocks. Beautiful work. I think because clocks can be both beautiful and functional they have a universal appeal. They have stood the test of time (pun intended).
Your work has the WOW factor.

Have your say...
