My brother loves Art Deco inspired home furnishings, so I made this clock as a Christmas present for him. The clock body was machined from Peruvian Walnut and is two 3/4" pieces glued together. The wings, also walnut, are 3/4" with the outside portion pocketed down to 1/2". The base is 3/4" Tiger Maple. I used the cnc spoilboard as a jig to setup for gluing on the wings. I have the back of the clock body vcarved with his name and "Christmas 2018". I will give it to him Saturday at his home for Christmas Dinner.

Well designed and built. Must have been a trip, going to Peru for wood. Not familiar with that "brand" of walnut. Looks nice. Thanks for sharing the project and the build.

Nice looking clock, Bob! Do you order Peruvian Walnut or can you get it locally to you? I would have to order it.

Cardwell Hardwoods, 28 mile drive to Jefferson City MO, has a huge selection of hardwoods and about every wood working tool imaginable. Every time I visit them I spend to much money! On the last trip I also bought Australian Blood Wood which is beautiful and can't wait to use it.

I can't take total credit for the design. I remembered seeing the clock in Woodsmith Magazine several years ago. I dug out my old copies and found it. The original design was half the size and had only 1 wing on each side, body was 3/4" thick and wings 1/2" thick. I also rounded over all of the top edges

Nicely done. You've added to a design to make it your own. I like it. I made the original a few years ago, didn't have the insight to take it further than the print.

Nice looking clock. I'm sure he will love it.

I love using Peruvian Walnut, it machines well and it is amazing how dark the Peruvian Walnut gets when you apply the finish.
