I bought an entire rusted, cracked, nasty, no good firewood worthy cherry from a local sawmill two years ago. The guy that helped me load the slabs had a smirks on that basically said, “thanks for purchasing our trash that would otherwise be burned. Nevertheless, I paid the $120 to have the log sawn into 2” slabs. My helper was right; it was a worthless log with poison oak running all through it which made the rotted center bluish green. Anyways, I have made a few martial arts sticks from the edges and this clock as well to pay for my treasure/trash hunt. Just sharig my work and thanks for your feedback.

Wow. I really like the contrast in both color and texture of the crisp sides and the black craggy ends. Nice job.

Amazing what people will overlook – it takes a visionary to see what lies beneath the surface andknow what is needed to turn one man’s trash into another man’s treasure. Great job on the clock – just don’t show it to the Sawmill guys – next time they’ll charge you double. LOL

Thanks for posting.
