This Shadowbox clock is created from a cottonwood burl leftover from my Jet Engine Coffee Table Project, a Shou Sugi Ban finished frame, and a Copper Sheet from K&S Precision Metals that I added a Patina to using fire, water, and Borax.

The Shou Sugi Ban Frame is made from white oak. I like how the grain of the white oak shows through the char left behind in the grain, and on the front edges, the ray fleck that is traditionally seen on quarter-sawn oak shows through beautifully. You can see this in the video section where I trim the clock’s second hand to fit.
