    Very nice work Betty! I'm curious how you make out with it at your shows. Looks like a lot of time involved (which for me = $$$$).

      Great job!!! Lots of little details and you did them perfect.

      Good luck at the shows, but for some reason I think you'll do fine

              beautiful scenic clock you made, and perfect for the season. If the battery dies, you can call it a Michigan clock...look Ma, no power.

                I knew you could, Betty. Not it's time for a new avatar.

                That is one of the nicest little clocks I have ever seen. Plenty of detail, but not overwhelming. I love the reindeer and Santa on the roof and what appears to be snow hanging off the roof. It's one of my favorites. All those antlers look quite fragile, I might add. The contrasting woods really set it off, too. All in all, awesome job.

                    Betty, that clock is great! Usually when I do a clock, I will orient the grain direction the opposite way on the roof trim, but looking at the grain , and the snow hanging over the roof, I am glad you didnt do like I would have. Your grainlines really make that piece look like its actually layers of snow. I'm sure you carefully planned it that way, and, you done great! I do think the deer and sleigh blend in a little and make them hard to notice, but Im sure thats just in a photograph, in person they probably are easily noticeable! Thank you for not giving up on picture posting, its a beautiful piece.
                    I will admit though, after just reading a previous post, I was expecting to see some ultrasound picture or something!!! Let us know how the show goes, and how much time you have into this piece,as well as asking price! Dale

                        Thank you, Thank you. The grain was supposed to go crosswise to look like snow. They recommended plywood, but I used birdseye maple for the front two and some beautiful cherry for the others. As for the reindeer, I did use cherry but I might try cutting them with plywood as it is only 1/8" and about half of the antlers are reglued with CA! I don't like plywood, but I think in this case it will give the antlers more strength. And for the windows, I needed two but cut 8 and they are so thin, I broke 2 gluing them in. I kept forgetting not to press on the cross piece Sarah was thinking about putting snow on the roof and front pieces, but after we saw it oiled, decided it was nice like it was and the snow would have detracted from it. It took me 5, yes 5 hours, to glue and cut the patterns! I was planning only 2 hours at the most, but the reindeer are so delicate you really have to be careful. About 2 hours to glue and attach everything. I plan to putting a price of $80 on it, if not more. And Dale, I'm getting some untrasound pics as I type. Will post if people don't have objections.

                          Why would people object? If they don't like them, they don't have to look. I'll be looking forward to them. It was less than a year ago when I was looking at my daughters ultrasound pictures of my grandson. I think it's really neat seeing how they already have toes and fingers before they're even born. If more people saw these pictures, there would maybe be less abortions.

                          Please post.

                            Betty you did a wonderful job with these and you deserve every bit of what you are asking . People that know and appreciate arts / crafts will see what went into it. Good luck at the sale.
