Here is my latest Grandfather Clock.. I finally have a new showroom to display the clocks in, so I am rather excited..
This clock features Fiddleback Blackwood.

You ought to proud of that, tazchris. Your jpeg compression is a bit hard so some of the grain detail is a little difficult to make out in the photo, but it still looks spectacular.:2tsup:

Nice one tazchris, up to your usual high standard. Is the bookcase yours too? it seems to have your signature moulding on the side.:p
Hope I can drop in to your gallery also later this year (sounds like it will be a full of woodie forumites too:p) when I visit the folks in Tasmania.

Yes Swifty,the moulding on the bookcase is the same as I use on some of my clocks..
I imagined that if someone bought a piece of furniture with this moulding, they might like a clock to match..
Here is a picture showing the timber grain, the door mitre and crown moulding..
