These are Wall Hanging Grandfather Clocks. The top one is made from black walnut and was commissioned as a Present for her son. I worked hard and long hours to complete it and make it as perfect possible. Worked on it all day and up to 11:00 at night to complete it for Christmas. I called the customer to tell her it was ready; customer said that is wonderful, and could she pick it up January 10th. (Watch me slowly deflate and collapse in a mud puddle.) At least she has paid for it!)o_O

The bottom clock is cherry with maple facing. I built this one for my wall. Just waiting on the bezel and dial face for completion. The plans for this clock were purchased from Cherry Tree Toys, designer unknown, but most likely Dirk Boelman, Ray Wilkens, or John Nelson. The door on the lower part does open for a neat little hidey place. There is also a door on the back giving access to the quartz movement for setting time and replacing the AA battery.

Aww shucks......thanks everyone, but I love making little holes in big pieces of wood--it makes them lighter.;)

Absolutely beautiful work. And even though it's a clock, the piece is timeless. Certainly good enough to wait until Jan 10!

Absolutely gorgeous work! The lady may not be very "timely" with her gift, but she does know how to give a quality gift!
