From Timber to Time

    My second and third clocks are made from quarter sawn white oak. The wood came from a friend of mine who asked me in the early spring to remove this big oak tree from her horse paddock. We fell the tree and then used a chainsaw mill to slab the last 7′ of the tree. (Straightest grain) I figured it would be a nice Christmas gift (although a bit late) to make each person involved (owner of tree and friend who helped mill) a clock from the very same slab of wood from a tree they helped take down.

    Looks really great, Jon. I love the way those bead details shine. A fine gesture on your part – they’ll love the clocks.
