Horse Chestnut Desk Clock 458

Horse Chestnut Desk Clock 458
£16.00 1 Available
Love this


A solid brass clock set into a piece of beautiful horse chestnut wood which has the bark still attached and has been cut to show off the lovely figuring in its grain. The clock, which has a quartz movement and comes complete with battery, measures 35mm in diameter and is removable to facilitate battery replacement. The clock stands 155mm tall and has a depth of 45mm from front to back. The face, top and bottom of the wood have been finished with beeswax and buffed to a soft sheen, while the bark has been finished with a clear lacquer.


I wanted to make this piece to illustrate that wood can be beautiful without being turned albeit the sanding does take longer as some is done by hand.. The beauty of the wood is enhanced by the simple, elegant shape, and a close connection to the tree is retained. A stylish, functional and versatile piece for any setting, this would make the ideal gift for a man or a woman and would look equally impressive in a work/home office or on a lounge shelf.
