Hi Robert
Looks nice mate but, a little top heavy for my liking, non the less, another fine effort

Hi Robert

Lots of work in these and you look to have a great finish. I can see what Marc means - I would suggest a slightly thinner top finial.

Nonetheless, a great piece of work
Cheers Dave

Hello Robert,
                        I think I told you making these clocks would become a compulsion so welcome to the habit. Each successive one will show a little improvement as your skill level and standards improve. I like the choice of timber and the finish on No3 but agree about the finial being too big. Long may the habit affect you.   Alan  T
    P.S.Dunno about expert just like making 'em.
