Hello all
I got these clocks and made a batch of six for various family members. I turned the tops and bases on my lathe (Record) and finished them in beeswax. Any thoughts out there? See photos in my folder.

Hey, mass production Alan .
I like them, variations on a theme by Alan.
I particularly like the one on it's own in the rose's.

Yes I did also. It seems more balanced on reflection. So more of them. And know a pen or two. This is my first pen and is the slimline  7mm size. I'm absolutely over the moon with the making of the pen without any further modifications. I used sanding sealer and then some beeswax. I just simply made it to see the effect before venturing further and am more than pleased with the results.
