Sorry guys, I just don’t know how to turn the pictures the right way!! So you’ll have to tilt your heads a bit….

Anyway, got this idea from an LJ a few days ago…and decided to make one. I had a clock that was collecting dust in my drawer and I had some exotic woods just sitting there…..so I decided to create an heirloom..wink,wink….

Not sure where it’s going but it will be in the living-room for now.

That’s a nice clock. To get the picture turned you just grab the bottom corner and lift (with your legs, never lift with your back.) Here it’s started, a little more…

Almost there.

Too far! Too far! I thought you had that side.

Whew, that was close. Now it’s fine. No, it’s fine – just leave it alone before you break it.

You’ld think that there would be a Portrait or Landscape setting on that camera / phone to orient photos correctly.
What woods and finish did you use on your clock ?

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

G’day Prez, That’s surely on very fine piece of timber you selected to make the clock.
The positioning of the clock at the top of the figure/grain pattern just sets it all off perfectly.
Well done sir..
