Project Information

Made this clock from a downed tree. The story I was told is that the tree started to rot in the center. The tree was then hit by lightning causing the center rotted portion to burn. If this story is true, if that tree didn't have bad luck, it didn't have any luck. I soldered the copper wire to the movement box & then epoxied it to the cookie.

Really a beautiful looking time piece. The wood cookie is an outstanding piece of wood. Out of curiosity, what kind of finish did you use on it. Excellent job !!! Mel
