This is another skill builder for me, based on the Wood Whisperer design but I tossed in a curve, literally on the east and west ends of the clock. To match the brushed metal bezel, I went with a couple of 5/16 bolts spun in the drill press with a 3M pad finish instead of the wooden dowels. A couple of padauk inserts to keep things interesting and she’s ready to keep in the shop or give to… That’s the end of walnut and pad for me for a while, so many cool woods out there. Thanks for looking!

Wow! Sorry I didn’t see this sooner. This is a really beautiful clock. I like the arches and the bolts add a very nice touch that work very well with the clock face. Fantastic work Paul!
