I based the building of this clock on plans designed by Glen D Huey. I used holly for the line inlays and maple and red ceder for the berries, the banding is made of holly and walnut. I finished it with boiled linseed oil then three coats of amber shellac and then a coat of paste wax.

Superb job on this wonderful creation. I really like the line and berry design and have done several.
The way you overlapped the berries is a true sign of craftsmanship making them look like natural berries.
Kudos my friend on a fine project.

Now, I do have a question, did you use the router (or rotary tool), or scratch in the lines by hand????

For Grumpymike, i scratched in all of the grooves for the holly strips by hand that i got from Lee Valley. Some of the moldings were shaped with scratchstocks because i was having trouble getting the profile i wanted.
