Burl Clock made for a friend. Not sure what type of wood it is – found it at a flea market. This more celebrates the beauty of wood than any skill with working wood.

It is still a beautiful clock. Someone had the imagination to use this wood and build this clock. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the comments. I spent a lot of time sanding the face smooth. I really like the look of the burled edges. Whenever I see a a nice wood slab I collect it and put it in my collection for later. I have always liked making these kind of clocks – it is something that my grandfather did a lot of.
