Very nice looking clock : )
How big is the timepiece and what did you finish it with ?

Thank you. That is one of my favorite styles of clock faces. I’ve used smaller versions quite a bit , but nothing that large to date. I’ve got to get back to using Tung Oil again….spent a lot of money on “new and improved” finishes , but obviously Tung Oil is hard to beat : )

I’ve used the same face, only at 6.25 in. I need to try the Tung Oil finish. I really like the appearance. Nice work.
