This is a long one! I received a commission for a "wild" cherry burl clock. My challenge was to create the course grain of the burl, but balance it against the refined shapes of a clock face. My customer and I agreed on a clock, and the extent of my instructions was: "I want it rough like 'Rift' (a vase I made last fall using part of the same burl)."
This project has multiple elements, and I go into detail describing my design decisions. Please let me know if you appreciate this format, or if I should try and shorten the videos a bit more.
Because this is a Christmas present, and the recipient follows my Facebook and perhaps my Instagram, I can't really share this anywhere but here!
