Clock I built, cherry base, walnut clock frame, ash clock face. The saw blade is tiger stip maple, handle is walnut. It was a gift to my parents for their fireplace mantel. The picture does not do it justice

Good job – thanks for posting.

I’ve just decided what I will make for my father-in-law for Christmas. He’s a retired carpenter.
