OK, I have been asked to make a few things for a fundraiser, which will help raise money to pay medical bills for a local guy. One of the projects will be a Mantel clock. I have the hardware on the way and looking fo input on how to make the clock nicer lookin. I am going to the lumber suppleir to find som high figured grain wood for it. Where the black face is, I plan on useing a contrasting wood from the frame. For wood, I am thinking curly walnut and a curly maple face.Ideas, good bad or other are welcome.
