This beautiful desk clock would bring warmth, elegance and style to any home or office, Entirely made by hand like all my clocks and fine furniture, the moulding on the base was not done with a router but rather a 150 year old moulding plane. Just goes to show you don’t need screaming machinery to make works of art.
The timber of choice is New Guinea Rosewood a medium sized hardwood that grows across south east Asia. The heartwood varies from a lovely rich golden brown through to a rich deep red. The figure in this timber can be quite extraordinary with swirls, fiddleback, burr and more.
The clock face is made from Cambia Ash which a marketing term used for White Ash, the Cambia thermal modification process uses high heat in a controlled atmosphere to improve the durability of the wood as well as to increase its dimensional stability. A deep, natural color in special drying process provides a rich finished product that looks exotic without hurting the environment. This is one of my most favoured timbers.
