I just finished building four more clock frames for my sister. These frames are 43" in diameter and are made up of 24-25 segments. The segments are held together with loose tenons and hide glue. My sister will take these and make a center that is very creative. The clocks are very nice looking and she does a nice job. I built others last winter for her. The completed clocks can be seen down in one of the earlier blog entries.
