Sometimes i forgot how nice is to live in a tropical country. I always complain that in my country we cant find this hardware and that shipping it here will be way too expensive, dont have the nice tools and other things. on the plus side we have lots of beautiful and varied types of wood, and somehow still affordable. So you see, we can not always have everything, or we can, but not at the same time.
and i had a couple more that i left out, as the day only has 12 hour.
some of the woods are:
mahogany for the movement, Honduras rosewood, cypress, jobillo, pine a a few others that i only know the local name.
this wall clock was done using local wood, most of them recollected around my city, just one or two pieces are from another city that is like a 2 hour trip.
the metal part was done using motorbike wheel spokes, i thought on using nails but they will get rusted so i decided to got that way, they look way better too.
