This is the second clock I have made from the extra pieces of the large chunk of maple I milled last summer. For this clock, I made a segmented section where the clock hands go that indicate hours. I made a 12 piece segmented section to embed in the larger piece of maple. I then turned a space for the hands of the clock and sanded the outer surface. I used a linseed beeswax mix to finish the clock.

In the lawn chair video I did not get a chance to show how I glued everything together, and how the spring system under the chair works to give the back support. In this addendum I show the above as well and putting on the final finish.

This lawn chair is made from sequoia that I cut up with my friend Brian about 2 years ago. The chair consists of a frame roughly defining a cube. The seat and back sit within this frame and are made of slats hung on two cylinders running between the sides of the frame. The back can recline.
