I made this wooden wall clock from the root parts of a dead Wild Olive tree, that grew in South Africa’s Highveld region and are speculated to have been more than 300 years old when it eventually died.
First of all I made lots of small blocks from the root branches. I then glued it painstakingly together, night after night, with one peace at a time.
The whole project took me several weeks to complete.
The clock’s dimensions is as follows: It is 3 cm thick and about 31 cm in diameter.
The little red part in the upper part is a hole, which I still intend on making, maybe a small red butterfly there,
with glossy red paint?
N.S. These type of projects takes way too much time to sell and thus I only made it to enjoy myself. It now hangs proudly in my sleeping room.
