  1. Craftsman Pendulum Clock

    This is my 1st commissioned piece. I made a total of 5 (plus 1 that's a bit different for a family member). Every board in the clock is QSWO, most of it with fantastic grain patterns. Trying to stay true to the work of the early 1900s, I don't try to make the grain "pop" as many LJers do...
