Very nice, well done as usual, I like the design. Whats the diameter? By the looks of it you must have a fairly large lathe.

Don, what a wonderful project! The wood figure is very nice. I like the fact that you used the burl veneer behind the pendulum.

Dick, the diameter of the clock is 11.25". My lathe handles this with a little room tospare over the bed, but I can turn larger pieces by 'outboard' turning the head.

excellent as always. I am intrigued by the circular frame around the clock.. Impressive

hmmm I have a small pocket watch (probably my gr-grandfather's, again) ... right now it's just sitting on a shelf but maybe it would be interesting to display it in a wall-clock casing… can I do it? anything is possible.

thanks for posting this piece, Don (and I might be asking you for some advice on the "how" to create my idea).
