This year I made two Green & Green style clocks for my oldest daughter & son. I also made a custom Headphone stand for my youngest son (Sophomore in college)

The clocks are made from Mahogany & Ebony. They are from WOOD magazines plans.
The headphone stand is made from mahogany , maple, & walnut with a mahogany stain and lacquer finish.

The clocks were by far the most precise fitting things I have ever made.
It was a good learning experience.
Unfortunately the photos do not show the real beauty of the finish. They look much better in person.
I want to thank Dale Maley for his help with this build. He has a very good step by step build process on his web site and he was generous enough to share that with me.

Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas to you all!

Good looking Clocks, just bought a book on G & G!
Had to chuckle at the bananas comment, my brother just sent a
Picture of all the ones he just harvested! Said he had to give them away on the street!
He is picking Bananas and I get to shovel Snow?
