new clock

THis is a new split turned clock I just finished. It is walnut with mahagony and ebony pendulum. The segmented part was cut using a handmade miter box.

John lucas Thats a nice looking clock. The pendulum looks to be inlayed into the body of the clock. Am I seeing it wrong or Doe's the pendulum move?

Everything was drilled and inlayed before the outside was turned except for the pendulum ball. It's all flush with the main surface.
