First Clock

Thu, Apr 5, 2007, 12:53pm (EDT-3) snipped-for-privacy@gmail.com (Andy) doth sayeth: I really like the spalting also, but I'm not sure I like it with the rest of the clock. The clock face and dark, evenly-colored solid wood case and trim suggest a very nice classical style, and IMO the spalted wood doesn't really fit in. I think if the clock face were simpler, and maybe the top & bottom molding were simpler too, that I would REALLY like it. <snip>
I'd have to see it in person before I could decide if I'd change my mind on the spaltted piece, but I doubt I would.
The clock itself I really like as is. To me looks like a now antique clock would have looked like when it was new - and not something someone tried to make look old by "distressing" it. The clock I have has a similar style face, so I like that. I think your mom will like te clock (even with the spalted piece), and should pat you on your head and tell you you're a good boy. LOL

Sorry to hear your wife doesn't like it; it's a very nice piece of work

I can see a lot of care went into making that clock.
Very well done. Love the case. Love the spalted maple. Not too keen on the clock face, its busy-ness detracts from the focal point...the maple... don't mind me, I tend to lean towards designs with fewer points of interest. In my head, I see a clock-face like a Movado watch and spalted maple...together.

Good point ... with a simpler face, the design could better carry the unpredictability of the spalt pattern. Right now the design has two focal points ... yes ... SUPER nice clock with a simpler face. Put a small faceted piece of amber at 12, 3 & 9.
