This was a clock i made for my friends kid. It's made of maple and I added a light inside it. The light shines through a thin piece of shell. It looks like mother of pearl. It has just an absolute glow to it. The clock piece i purchased at woodcraft.
I used to own one of these and I think the asking price is pretty good , but I haven't seen his / her press in person.
Check for spindle end play at end of quill travel if you're looking at this model : )...
