This clock is made of maple and walnut. The clock mechanism is an inexpensive battery operated wall clock. I just built a case to go around it. The arched back is made from laminated 3/4” plywood into a block and band sawn into the shape, then I used maple veneer over it. The walnut trim is a mixture of cutout pieces (the dial inlay) and bent wood (the back highlight strip over the arch). The circular inlay is a store bought applique, and I made the walnut ring around it. The base is 2” thick solid walnut. The finish is sanding sealer 2 coats, and lacquer two coats, sprayed. It is 19” tall, 12 1/2” wide, base is 15” wide, and 6” deep. I’d originally built it for a fund raiser for a gardening organization I’m involved in, but the fund raiser was canceled. Now my wife wants to keep it!
