Ellipse Eclipse Clock

 This is a red oak Eclipse clock with an elliptical clock in it. I had originally made an Eclipse clock from the picture in Klockit catalog. Then they came out with an elliptical clock movement so I just had to make an EllipseEclipse Clock. It is one of a kind ( unless someone got the same idea). One thing about the elliptical movement is that because of the placement of the mounting fingers, it does not sit in the center of the hole so you have to take that into account when cutting the ellipse shape so it is centered on the face.

I have actually been thinking about making one of these. You may have just lit the fire under me to get started soon. I like the way the grain stands out on these. Excellent job !!!   Mike

Thank you all for the nice comments. I'm sorry about that grainy photo but I pull them over from Lumberjocks and I think I know what causes that. I'll set out fixing it right now............Cheer, Jim

It worked. If I try to  save the little photo. It is grainy. I have click on it to make it big and then "save as" and you get the crisp photo...............Sometimes an old dog can learn new tricks!!
Just curious about the bar/pin that connects the clock part to the C shaped arm above it and the base below. Can you order that or is it something you designed from something else.
Hi Mike. I turned them from solid brass.

Cheers, JIm
Jim, Thanks. I thought about turning them from some kind of hard wood or something stabilized.
The wood should be dry and stable so that diameter does not change.

Cheers, Jim
Really nice clock Jim,    I'm just catching up from changing over from LJs and remember all the nice work you've done over the years.
