Just finished a couple of miniature clocks. The first is a mantel clock made of Siberian elm, the second a grandfather clock made of cherry.

I had a friend give me a couple of pieces of the elm for a project for him and I used the cutoffs to make the clock. First time working with Siberian elm, a beautiful wood.

The “grandfather clock” is of cherry. I had a piece of cutoff from some trim molding I had made from a previous project that made a nice center piece for this clock.

I’m a pack rat when it comes to saving scrap wood, with Christmas coming I’ll put it to good use making gifts.
