Burr elm wall clock

It's amazing what you can find when you tidy up the workshop. This lovely piece of burr elm was left over from a project I made four years ago and I'd forgotten all about it. When I moved workshop before christmas I found it again and decided it would be perfect for a clock.

The wedge shape was dictated by the tapering dimensions of the board so I kept it as wide as possible and added the curved profiles to each end. There's a little bit of natural edge breaking the edge on the bottom left side - I like the slight imperfection this gives and it balances out the cluster knot at the top right. The clock is ready to be wall mounted but it would also work stand mounted on a mantel piece or shelf.
