Both your clocks are very nice looking,,....My only question is why did you make the clock so much taller than needed for that size clock face?

Here is the latest: #003.
Cherry and maple. Cherry was has a walnut stain.

The original plan was to use walnut for this build. I bought a rough sawn board at the local farmer's market last year for $12 - but it had some crazy grain that couldn't be planed in the same direction. I got several cherry boards from another farmer who had the stuff sitting in his hay loft for the last 20 years, so I dove into that stash for this project.

Anthony, I take it your #80 scraper wouldn't smooth the wild grain. Nice clock!

I sunk hours and hours into trying to get that board smooth. There was tearout no matter what I did. I found the attached pic online - the whole board was similar to this - it's like it was one giant knot.

That's too bad. It would have made a nice background.

Did you try sanding it smooth?

Sanding usually does not lift the grain like a cutting edge does.

Sanding that twisted grain would take a lot of patience ... or leave a lot of cross-grain scratches.

Such a beautiful piece of wood.

Random orbit sanders wont leave much in the way of cross grain scratches.
