I made a clock

This was a fun little project, and my first time doing inlays. Walnut crotch piece with maple lines and oak dowel for the circles. The most time consuming part was getting those oak dots in the correct places.

My 6 year old daughter is learning to read an analog clock to tell time in school right now, and she very confidently told me she knew what time it was even though there are no numbers on my clock. Yes, they still teach kids how to read these old-timey clocks. Now I have to make one for her room. I asked if she wanted a pink one. "No daddy, just like yours." That's my girl!

I like that. It's got a very simple, yet appealing design. Very nicely done.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

That is very nice. And hats off to your daughter for learning to tell time the right way.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos
