That's a beauty, Chas. Very nicely done.

Chas, good looking clock. Simple, yet elegant.
Now, to change the battery, one would just pull the clock out from the case?
What diameter is the face?
What is the finish?
As always, nice job Chas. You never cease to inspire me (I just haven't begun trying to make some of your projects, yet).

Chas you never cease to amaze me. That is certainly a great minimalist approach to a clock and it works so well. I am used to seeing clocks embedded in a chunck of wood but that wood border looks so much finer and refined. How about a nice spalted one or one in a dark wood. The contrast would be huge between say the gold and walnut. Real neat arrangement.
Contrast woods, SWMBO has already voiced similar, have a shed full of spalted but I think it may be too busy or to far gone for fine detail, need to drag out the storage bins and see what was put away awaiting inspiration
Very pretty little clock Chas. How was is attached to the base?
What goes around, comes around.
Chas that is a beauty. Great looking wood.

I really like this one, Chas. Very clean look. You definitely achieved your goal of breaking out of the "craft stall" look.
Dunno if I could to the 100mm part, though, since I don't have a metric lathe.
