I made this clock (SN #803) in the summer of 2019. It’s fabricated of (mostly) local, sustainably-harvested timber and was designed, milled, cut, and assembled almost exclusively by hand in my studio/garage.
The hardwoods used were carefully selected for their hardness and ability to resist damage and should last a lifetime.
The pieces are fused with high-quality, non-toxic wood glue and the clock requires one AA battery (and keeps decent time).
The final product was then sanded to perfection, and hand-rubbed with several coats of Tung Oil.
