Tick Tock
« on: January 17, 2015, 05:12:21 PM »
Made for DiL's 40th Aussie Eucalyptus burl.

I will be so glad when February's over and I can get some metal work done. :Doh:

That's beautiful, Ginner!  :clap: :clap:

Some real character, in the grain patterning.  :thumbup:

I hope to hear some time today

That could be a while although I am waiting on some more small faces (LOL good group) the burls already just to sit them in.

I'd love to do a decent thread on one I made from scratch doubt that will ever happen. I do mean making the clocks works.
