    they all look great but mines still the best.

    Wow nice work there Tom. The pictures certainly show the wood well. My favorite would be the Spalted Elm one too. Great work.

    All are great, but the walnut and curly maple one is my favorite...the two woods just look great together IMO.

    Tom, did that spalted come from Paul Downe's supply I was lucky enough to get a batch of pen blanks from when we all met up at Larry's???
    I really like the looks of all of them. I have thought about them from time to time , do they make BIG clock works like for a shop clock hanging on a wall?
    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.

    I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.

    Thanks all I appreciate the comments
    Jonathan, the spalted elm came from my older brothers wood pile, he found when splitting firewood and made small boards instead of fire wood. And yes there are larger clocks for wall hanging. I got these here they have a large selection of many versions
    Do you want some spalted wood? I can sent you some if you PM me your address
