It's walnut, with Zissner amber shellac. Maybe I'll be able to get better pictures in the daylight to show the grain figure, which I quite like.
This had a lot of firsts for me. Previously, almost all of my projects were tables, dressers, and bookcases that had pretty much the same formate of rails, stiles, mortises, tenons, panels, etc. This was my first octogon (easily cut with an Incra miter jig and band clamped*). My first shop-made moulding. Less easy, but I'm pretty happy with how it came out (although I couldn't get a decent photo showing the profile clearly):
And the miters aren't very tight. And, there's a glue line. And I didn't sand the moulding very well. But . . . I didn't hurt myself making it.
Thanks for looking.
*This one time, at band clamp.

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

Other than what Iíve seen on Antique Road Show Iíve little exposure to these things. Is it an antique? Normal that the label obstructs the view of the Pendulum?

Of course I made it. You think I'd post about buying a clock? All the wood I made. The workings I bought.
Holdup, you made that whole thing? The frame? The clock you bought? Amazing either way. I canít believe you donít have a studio on a shaded Williamsburg side street.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”
