The Wedding Present

Just as a brief change of tone from my usual posts, here is a clock I recently finished and gave as a wedding present to some friends:

Made from burl elm. The points of the clock are actually drill-holes filled with little chunks of solder.

So there: a little shameless self-promotion!


  1. ...what a beautiful piece of art!

  2. Thanks very much Tahera :) I love elm, it has such gorgeous colour and pattern even without me doing any work at all. Most of my work here was to smoothen the surface and sand it to a high polish, as well as cutting a hole in the back for the clock mechanism.

    Quite satisfying work, all in all :)
