Default 7-day clock mock-up

Here is the first attempt at the 7-day clock, this is the mock-up for the real thing ,this one is made of a cedar stud.

what do you think? is the face OK? color OK? is there too much white around the face? Does the black hand look too clunky? Should it be a different color hand?

Herb; it's all personal taste...no right or wrong. Having said that, I like the white...it adds some clean emphasis to the neutral colours.
Another colour you could try (on a scrap piece!) would be a fairly deep Burgundy. Sort of a Tuscany look, with the beige face.
But yeh, can I order one?

I think the design is great, I might personally use a little skinnier pointer.

Love the seven sided design

Looks good,
Like Dan says personal taste.
( I think the black hand bothers you and does draw your eye to it) you try different color or style

Yep, personal choice. I wouldn't ask, I'd just sit and look at it, and think, until I came up with something I liked. But, that's me.

I agree with the above, it's personal taste. That looks great as is, even if it's a mock up. Wish my mock ups looked like that

The pointer is a tad wide, it sort of blocks out the days.

It just occurred to me, I don't need a pointer; I'm retired!

Unusual for Herb to be undecided. I think you must have serious doubts to ask this bunch for advice.

But it depends where its going to hang. If its indoors then it will need to match (or contrast) the decor.
Personally, (as if your gonna take my advice, but hey) I would make the hand slightly thinner and also the days bolder. And your not going to like this one, but I dont like the single knot. If there were more then it would be fine, but as its just the one , to me thats a defect that draws my eye.

see, thats what you get for askin'
