    It's chocolate time

    Dan Noren's state fair clock entry reminded me that I had a clock that's been needing a home for some time...Some of Larry's chocolate came to the rescue...
    Nothing fancy and with my lack of photo skills, my pictures couldn't make up for my lack of wood-skills either I'm not too sure if I like the Red Oak inlay, I prefer maple with walnut, but our living room trim is all oak, so.... ...Anyways, thanks Dan for the reminder/inspiration and again to you Larry for your generosity.

    Pretty darn neat!

    It is a good looking clock. It is an interesting clock. It is a fun clock. I cannot see any defects in the clock.

    Why are you berating yourself???

    Enjoy yourself,

    I like this one a lot, Ken. I think the oak inlay kicks it up a couple of notches, too.

    Lack of photographic skills must come in handy when you lack woodworking skills. Easier to hide the mistakes that way, I'd guess. Yours, for example, sure are invisible from here.

    Well done. The forum once again provides inspiration and shares the woodworking spark.

    Ken, Your use of different woods always amazes me, I think the oak and walnut look great together. Great looking clock too.

    Ken i also think that the oak does a great accent with that walnut. Great clock by the way.
