a couple of days ago i decided that since i had an abundance of leftovers, that i would make a few (12) desktop size clocks. the design of the top part stayed the same, with a rounded top, but the base went through a few changes, finally winding up deciding on a base similar to the one going to the fair. they are red and white oak, and walnut. as for a finish i've decided to go with blo and shellac. now i just have to order the clock inserts that i have my eye on, and they'll be all set. a nice addition to the craft show offerings.
