Turned Clocks

I was digging through my workbench drawers yesterday looking for my long forstner bit extension (never did find it) when I stumbled across two clock fit up's I had purchased years ago. Way back then I made a bunch of various clocks for friends and family, even sold a few. So having these two newly found clock fit up's and a bit of scrap Cherry and Walnut cutoffs I turned a couple of desk clocks. The Cherry piece has a 3 7/8" quarts clock insert and the smaller Walnut one has a 2 3/8" insert. Both are finished with a bit of DO. I used my big disc sander to grind a flat spot on the bottom so the clocks would stay upright but angled back just a bit..Bill..

Bill,
Those look sweet, how long does it take you to turn one of them, start to finish. Great job.
