Not sure what kind of wood this is. I got by resawing a chunk of lagging used in bridge construction. I got lucky with the grain pattern and kinda made the clock around the piece of book matched wood I used for the front legs. It dictated the size and design.

That wood does make this basic clock form jump out at ya. Nice job of working with what you had.

If I had to guess I would say a curly Oak.

Nicely done in accenting the grain pattern in the wood.
A woodworker will build something with wood… an artist creates such visual appeal as you have in this clock.

Madmark2: yes, battery operated movement, and the pendulum ticks with each sweep.

That is a beautiful clock and you took great advantage of the grain. Could you tell us how you did the finishing as the grain really pops.

Like! Especially finding recyclable wood and making something special with it. Nice work.

Great job, you nailed the application of the book match!

Quite the color change before/after finish, what was your trick? That wood looks awesome.

The recycled part is my favorite. All pieces of wood hold some type of character depending on who is looking at it. This piece is beautiful.
