Default Great gifts

These little clocks are only 5" wide 8" high and 2 1/2 deep and they make wonderful gifts. I made six of them for the girls and ladies in my family and they were well received. Each one was a little different in the fact that the decorations were different. i made three oak and three maple and tried to match each one to the character of the recipient. Oldrusty

I really like those Al. I'm making picture frames for my sweetie these days, but clocks would be a really nice gift for the main people in my life. Thanks for the idea.

Those turned out nice Al. Did you make the moldings with your router or use store bought?

Nice looking clocks. And who doesn't like the gift if time. I'm sure they were or will be appreciated.
