This is my 4th or 5th clock and by far my favorite. Its a Christmas gift for my brother. Its made from African mahogany with a whole bunch of coats out Formaby’s tung oil finish. I almost don’t want to give it away.19 December 2013 at 11:53 pm #24200Greg MerrittParticipant
That is fantastic Dan! The black faced inserts really set it off. It base the look of campaign furniture. Like something in a British headquarters in India back in the day. Really nice.

It is amazing to me how you can be working along and realize something that Paul said in his video not only makes sense, but it’s an important thing. a little thing like the fact that your Knife has a bevel on both sides and you have to compensate for that when marking. And things like which side to a mark to avoid bruising… I’m enjoying this!

Here’s my first Paul-Sellers-design completed. It is really so that design matters, I enjoyed every step making it (although I am not satisfied with some details).
Abachi, 2 layers of shellac, beeswax.
Second clock is underway, from african mahogany.
