pyrography clock

I first saw these amazing clocks at a craft fair. I thought they were a brilliant idea, so I tried to make one myself. 

I found some wood cut down the grain at westonbirt woodfest. (sadly no longer running) then got the clock bits off Amazon or ebay, (I can't remember which now).

I had some issues trying to get the pendulum to swing within the hole I made! 

I used an ancient pyrography set that was given to us by my partners mum.

Then I put lots of lovely shiney varnish over it.

Then I gave it to my Mum!
