Another fine piece of artwork that is entirely handmade with a Samoan feel. This timber wall clock would look great in any home, it has character, style, beauty and charisma. The scroll work is just simply stunning, every curve is crisp and sharp coming to a fine point which can only be done hand no machine can ever replicate.
The joinery methods are simple yet strong comprising of stopped housing, grooves and mortise and tenon joinery. The entire clock is glued with animal protein glue called hide glue. This glue is reversible so if it ever needs repairing even 200 years from now any antique repair shop can reverse the glue and repair the joint without damaging your prized possession. This is the same glue that has been in use for hundreds of years and our museums and antique shops are filled with furniture that this glue still holds strongly together. No other modern day glue is reversible and natural.
Tasmanian Blackwood also known as Black Wattyl is medium sized Australian hardwood that grows in South Australia and the eastern states. In the wetter areas of Tasmania it is grown in large volumes.
It is definitely an appearance timber with a heartwood that is rich golden brown and very similar to the American Black Walnut.
