Here is a beautiful Walnut Mantle Clock. The grain is awesome! I finished this piece first with 2 coats of Tung Oil that really brought out the grain pattern. I then put on 3 coats of clear shellac followed by a good buffing with wax. I did not take out any of the imperfections in the piece..perfection sometimes can get boring!! The clockworks is a 3-1/2” insert from Klockit but this clock is not about telling time..it is about time itself and how presious it is. This piece will go to a silent auction in Minnesota to raise money for Epilepsy. My friend is the state president and he and his son both have been diagnosed with Epilepsy. I am going to make a few more pieces as well. I hope that you enjoy this piece.
