Very nice looking A&C clock—you really got some pop in that ray fleck!

beautiful results. Is that the Woodsmith plan? The cardinal almost looks like he is wearing shades.

Yes, that is a Woodsmith plan. Charley Harper’s bird art is very cool. The Motawi tile folks do a great job producing his art on these tiles. They are fine art themselves.

I’ve got a really small qswo board with lots of fleck that I’ve been waiting to use for something nice. This has got me thinking that I should make a clock. Looks fantastic.

Very nice clock’s shape and design elements. Is that ’’angry bird’’?

The green tile goes great with the oak…well done! I plan to make another one or two of these. Great little challenge.
