This clock out of bookmatched rosewood was made for a colleague who has just retired. It therefore has NO numbers on it. After all ,as a retiree, he doesnt have to be or go anywhere at a set time (LOL.) (now you understand) the wood was bookmatched, glued, and hot ironed onto particleboard when dry. it was lightly sanded and urethaned. the center(?)(perfect im not) of the sunburst pattern was drilled for the clock and hands were added.

This one has a kind of western/Mexican color to it. Very interesting.

I notice that the leaf at 5 o’clock is a little different and doesn’t match the pattern exactly. There is a technique where you don’t put bookmatched pieces side by side you move them around maybe 3 or 4 places so that when you get back to the beginning you are not 12 leaves away from where you started but every leaf is about 3 or 4 leaves away so the changes are subtle around the circle.
